Chemical & Biosensor Chips Based on FETs

A field effect transistor (FET) is a key electronic component that is used throughout numerous areas of the electronics industry. FETs are largely used within integrated circuits, consuming much lower levels of power than integrated circuits using bipolar transistor technology meaning they can be used on a much larger scale.

SEM Imaging: Understanding the Basics

A scanning electron microscope (SEM) scans a focused electron beam over a surface to produce an image. The electrons in the beam interact with the sample, creating differing signals that can be employed to gain information about the surface topography and composition.

Our engineering team is working on an exciting project in #photolithography and #thinfilms. Can you guess?
