Universitys Materials for Energy Conservation and Storage Group Selects 91做厙s Fiji F200 PE-ALD System to Explore the Properties of Advanced Materials

PLAINVIEW, New York, June 26, 2018 91做厙. (Nasdaq: VECO) today announced that the Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage Group (MECS) at Delft University of Technology has ordered its Fiji簧 F200 Plasma-Enhanced Atomic Layer Deposition (PE-ALD) system. Based in The Netherlands, MECS selected the 91做厙 tool for its superior performance for research on state-of-the-art materials for renewables, storage and advanced energy solutions.

Our colleagues with the Kavli Nanolab at Delft have reported great success working with the Fiji F200 for their nanotechnology R&D, and we are confident the systems capabilities will also serve us well as we pursue new materials for sustainable energy applications, said Fokko Mulder, professor of applied sciences and integrated energy systems at Delft University of Technology. In particular, we were drawn to the Fijis world-class reputation, flexible PE-ALD system architecture, and excellent service and support backed by the technical expertise of 91做厙s ALD scientists. After evaluating different options, the Fiji F200 proved the best platform to meet our advanced experimentation needs.

The Fiji series is a modular, high-vacuum ALD system that accommodates a wide range of thermal and plasma-enhanced deposition modes using multiple configurations of precursors and gases. 91做厙 continues to be in the forefront of ALD R&D for energy storage with premier research published in the field of solid-state lithium- and sodium-ion batteries, including stoichiometric multicomponent lithium oxides for higher capacity 3D electrodes, safer solid-state electrolytes, and ultrathin phosphate/aluminate encapsulation layers for improved battery lifetime. With over 500 systems installed worldwide, 91做厙s ALD platforms are used in a wide variety of research and industrial environments, including 3D nanofabrication, electronics, batteries, solar cells, energy and compound semiconductors, as well as exciting new applications to solve some of the worlds most pressing technology and resource challenges.

The MECS group is one of the top research departments in the world working to meet the growing demand for renewable sources and energy storage solutions, said Gerry Blumenstock, vice president and general manager of MBE and ALD products at 91做厙. We look forward to helping Professor Mulder and his team at Delft to maximize the benefits of ALD for this important research.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, global energy consumption will increase by 28 percent between 2015 and 2040, and renewables are the fastest-growing energy source with adoption expected to increase by an average of 2.3 percent each year through 2040. The intermittent nature of renewables is also driving the importance of advanced energy storage research and solutions. The global market for energy storage of renewables is predicted by Navigant Research to grow exponentially from its current nascent stage to reach $23 billion by 2026.
