Updates from the Lab
Malachite Technologies and Sairem will be sharing a booth (#729) at the Society of Vacuum Coater’s Techcon 2019. Come visit with our experts to discuss your MW plasma processing applications.
Malachite has been awarded a contract from the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) in West Virginia to design and fabricate a high temperature (1000C) and high pressure (500psi) microwave reactor system. This system will be used for researching new catalysts used in chemical synthesis applications. This type of reactor is a common request from our Read more about Malachite Awarded Microwave Cavity Contract from NETL[…]
We are excited to announce that Malachite has been awarded an SBIR Phase II contract from the National Science Foundation. This two year, $750,000 program will continue the development of our scalable linear ion beam source technology for deposition, etch and surface modification over large areas.
We have begun to bring up one of our test chambers to use as a vertical R&D coating platform. This chamber was previously used as a load station for a much larger deposition chamber, but will now be modified to accommodate various deposition and plasma processing sources. A system like this is critical for us to Read more about Vertical In-Line Sputter System Build Underway[…]
As the facilities and build-out of our high-bay laboratory space continues, we’re bringing online high priority systems so that our current projects are not delayed. We have localized facility hook-ups for now as we plan and organize the full layout of the electrical, water, and compressed air connections.
We completed a quick-turn project to provide a controller and HMI for a vacuum oven used by a large international manufacturer. The oven is a follow-on order to an existing system delivered over 4 years ago. This first oven used proprietary software that is no longer available, so a fresh start was needed. To keep Read more about Controller Delivered Using Codesys on Raspberry Pi[…]
We are thrilled to announce that Malachite Technologies has been accepted into the Molecular Foundry at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for our proposal related gallium nitride (GaN) growth techniques. Through this 1 year partnership, we will utilize the Foundry’s extensive technical knowledge base and gain access to their state-of-the-art MOCVD and plasma ALD systems for Read more about Malachite Proposal Accepted at Molecular Foundry[…]
Using a solid state microwave generator, we are able to create a compact, and focused atmospheric plasma. In this picture we are using a small flow of Argon to ignite the plasma, and the colors that are visible are different elements in the room air being ionized. This small (and safe!) source is meant for Read more about Atmospheric Plasma Threads[…]
Buildout of our high bay space is nearly complete. New paint, racks, and floors. We will continue to improve this space with a clean room, workshop and assembly areas over the coming weeks.
Experimental sputter source hardware assembled and leak-tested. Copper cathode with integrated heatsink and aluminum darkspace shield. Designed by Malachite as part of an NSF program with university partners.
