Turnkey solution for nanomaterial synthesis

EasyTube® 2000 is an advanced turnkey thermal catalytic chemical vapor deposition process tool for the synthesis of a wide variety of nanostructured materials. The system is optimized for controlled process development and user safety.

Our systems are now being used for process development and/or materials growth across many industries including
nanoelectronics, semiconductor, photovoltaic, NEMS/MEMS, composite, structural coatings, etc.

Innovative Modular Design

Our modular platform houses key process components and multiple advanced options to meet your specific process requirements. Options are field upgradable.

Operated through our CVDWinPrC™ process control software, it automatically logs data and graphically shows the time dependent values of user selected parameters.
CVDWinPrC™ also allows users to load preprogrammed recipes, modify, check /create new recipes and view real time or saved execution data.

Designed to Meet Stringent Safety Standards

Designed to meet today’s more stringent safety standards, the system can safely process most pyrophoric and toxic chemicals including silane, germane, diborane, phosphine, HCl, and metal organic precursors. The system also has application customized safety protocols imbedded into relay logic, PLC and CVDWinPrC™ software.

HotLoad™ with FastCool™ Furnace for High Throughput

The EasyTube® 2000 offers high throughput. The HotLoad™ option (see image on page 2) enables fast heating and cooling by transferring samples between a cold loadlock chamber to a hot process chamber. The fast heating process shows improved SWCNT and Graphene quality. The FastCool™ resistance furnace automatically opens at multiple steps during the cooling stage to reduce the cooling time from more than 3 hours to less than 1 hour. With the HotLoad™ and/or the FastCool™ control, a typical CNT process can be finished within 1 hour.

Turn-Key System Capabilities

First Nano offers turn-key system capabilities with support equipment such as Gas Cabinets and Exhaust Gas Conditioning Systems. All major components from one vendor makes interfacing easy. The First Nano EasyGas™ gas cabinet is capable of delivering a variety of toxic and hazardous gases. The EasyExhaust™ System will thermally pyrolyze and wet scrub the process effluents.

Our field proven system performance and solid customer base establishes First Nano as the clear choice in leading edge nanotechnology development equipment for
the advanced research facility
