Congratulations to Prof. Dave McIlroy’s group, at the Physics Department of Oklahoma State University, for their recent publication in ACS Sensors Vol. 3 (2018) pg. 2367. The paper, authored by Lyndon Bastatas, provides some of the first results from the Okyay Tech ALD system recently acquired by that group. The ALD system includes a 4″ diameter Meaglow hollow cathode plasma source that was used to pretreat silica nanowire mat samples prior to the thermal deposition of ZnO in the Okyay Tech system. The ALD steps were part of a process to make a collection of 1D structures for ammonium nitrate sensors.
The picture shows Aaron Austin, one of the Oklahoma team next to the Okyay Tech ALD system with Mealgow plasma source shown at the top. Apparently more papers are on the way, with another 2019 publication already available. Meaglow is pleased to be an enabler of this next generation of research, check our products at www.meaglow.com.
