NanoDTC Students and Associates visit Thermo Fischer (FEI) and ASML

NanoDTC Students and Associates visit Thermo Fischer (FEI) and ASML to gain industry perspective of the application of Nanotechnologies

NanoDTC students and associates (Tim Van de Goor, Tommaso Busolo, Ryo Mizuta, Johannes Osterreith, Kate Sanders, Luka Skoric, Bill Stockham, Taylor Uekert,  Emily Williams, Demelza Wright, Haralds Abolins) visited Thermo Fischer (FEI) which build and design electron microscopes. They toured the NanoPort, a showroom of FEI’s latest microscope, and the transmission electron microscope (TEM) manufacturing facility. FEI is very focused on working with customers either in the NanoPort to obtain high-quality images/data, or while designing a microscope specifically suited to the customers’ needs. New experimental pathways with SEM/TEM could also be purchased by the company if they prove promising enough, as was the case with cryogenic TEM.

The group also visited ASML which makes lithography systems for etching Si wafers in industry, with an emphasis on large scale, high throughput machine manufacture. While they were there, they were taken on a tour through ASML’s interactive centre (which showcased some of the company’s products and people) and campus. In the afternoon, they worked in teams to produce a solution to a mechanical engineering problem. ASML’s most recent development is extreme UV (EUV) lithography, in which a tin plasma is used to emit EUV light.
