NANOMATION

AUTOMATED NANOFABRICATION AND MICROSCOPY

BACKGROUND


Instead of making transistors smaller, the scientific community is searching to utilise properties of novel materials, such as carbon nanotubes, nanowires, graphene and other nanomaterials to improve transistor performance.

CHALLENGE

Nanomaterial growth and deposition are random processes and are difficult to control, making fabrication of nanomaterial-based electronics difficult to scale up.

SOLUTION


We introduce a computer-vision software to automate fabrication of nanomaterial-based devices.

We reduce the device fabrication time from a couple of weeks to a couple of hours, saving money, time and energy use and reducing the associated carbon footprint of research and development.

APPLICATIONS

Imaging

Correlating microscopy images for a range of techniques and materials.

Materials

Developing material database to speed-up research and enable rapid prototyping.

Manufacturing

Developing scalable manufacturing processes of nanomaterial devices.

Life Sciences

Correlating data sets from tissues to sub-cellular structures and enabling live-cell imaging.
