CVD Equipment Corporation, a leading provider of standard and custom chemical vapor deposition systems, today announced that it has received a $1.3 Million order from Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) to manufacture an ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) deposition system for the growth of multilayer Laue lenses used for nanoscale imaging.
The system architecture is based on a previous system we designed and manufactured for Brookhaven National Laboratory. The system has five (5) UHV chambers and an extremely precise transport mechanism that moves the lenses back and forth through the UHV chambers while thousands of atomic layers are deposited.
Leonard A. Rosenbaum, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are excited to have received this order from ANL. As our bookings momentum continues through Q-4, each of our three principal customer groups: aerospace manufacturing, medical implant manufacturing and research laboratories (university and industrial) continue to show significant activity which we anticipate will continue for years to come.”
