Thin Film Deposition Value Proposition

CVD processing

Here at the University’s Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), we have developed chemical vapour deposition (CVD) processes to produce large-area thin films and 2D material systems. We are now working on investigating their properties and device functionality based on these materials. Our breadth of expertise and the application areas we are targeting are shown in the table below.
