Stevens Acquires Multi-Modal Physical Vapor Deposition System

Professor Chang-Hwan Choi of the Department of Mechanical Engineering announced today that Stevens Institute of Technology has been granted funding for a state-of-the-art thin film deposition system as part of “Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP)” at the Office of Naval Research (ONR).

DURIP supports “university research infrastructure essential to high quality Navy relevant research.” Selection by DURIP acknowledges the important contributions of Naval Research at Stevens. In fact, Professor Choi’s Nano & Microfluidics Laboratory supports several ONR objectives through projects including:

  • Nano-engineered superhydrophobic surfaces for light metal anticorrosion
  • Adaptable superhydrophobic surfaces using catalytic water splitting reaction
  • Nano-infused Teflon films for multifunctional appliqués

Acquisition of the Denton Vacuum Explorer® equipment gives Stevens researchers the capability to facilitate thin film growth, deposition, prototyping and the creation of novel concepts. It will also directly support two educational initiatives including a new cross-disciplinary PhD concentration in Nanotechnology and a Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education program while greatly increasing student’s exposure to physical vapor deposition and its research applications.

More information about this research funding can be on defense.gov.

Equipment Highlight

The “Denton Vacuum Explorer®” is a thin film deposition platform specifically designed to provide a robust environment for R& D activities and pilot scale production. It also offers the widest range of configurations and deposition modalities in the industry, including e-beam/thermal deposition and sputtering.

To learn more, please contact Professor Chang-Hwan Choi or visit the Nano & Microfluidics Laboratory.
