The specialist product development consultancy, Bio
Nano Consulting (BNC) is pleased to announce that it has won another international
Its specialist skills and equipment have now been called upon by a world-leading
electronics company for the analysis of thin-film transistors (TFTs). This project
is BNC's first to focus on microelectronic characterisation, reflecting the
vast capabilities and flexibility of the company.
As computer chips become smaller and more advanced, identifying potential problems
before they arise has become of great importance. As such, this project aims
to identify underlying metastability issues in metal oxide semiconductor TFTs,
which can result in serious computing and digital hardware problems.
Bio Nano Consulting's balance of skills and equipment enable it to address
real-world problems with nanotechnology-based solutions. "BNC addresses
technical problems utilizing world class technology and expertise. With access
to some of the foremost researchers and most advanced equipment at the London
Centre for Nanotechnology at the University College London, BNC possesses the
skills required to drive forward nanotechnology research and development across
a broad range of industries" said Dr David Sarphie, BNC's CEO. "With
our traditional focus being in the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical technology
and healthcare arenas, we are particularly thrilled that we have now been able
to extend our unique service offering to the field of consumer microelectronics."
The BNC is a specialist research and development consultancy operating in
the convergent field of bionanotechnology. A joint venture of Imperial College
London and University College London, the BNC is funded through the Technology
Strategy Board (TSB) with additional support from the London Development Agency
Along with its partner organisation, the National Physical Laboratory, the
BNC offers a service to the biomedical and healthcare industries in microsystems
and nanotechnology. This encompasses design, 3-D modelling and visualisation,
rapid prototyping, and characterisation.
