CVD Supplies U.S. Naval Research Laboratory with 2D Semiconductor Deposition Equipment

CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y., (Business Wire) – November 21, 2017 - CVD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV), a leading provider of chemical vapor deposition systems, today announced the supply of next generation 2D semiconductor deposition equipment to the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL).

Earlier this year, CVD Equipment Corporation (CVD) was awarded a contract to supply NRL with advanced deposition equipment to further their research in novel 2D transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD, TMDC) materials. The equipment was received at the customer’s facility last month.

Dr. Berend Jonker, Senior Scientist at the Materials Science & Technology Division of NRL, stated “the capabilities of CVD Equipment Corporation allowed us to specify exactly what we needed for our deposition equipment to develop new and innovative processes to optimize the synthesis and properties of this emerging class of atomically thin materials.”

CVD has shipped multiple systems for the synthesis of 2D TMDs this year, with more 2D TMD deposition systems in backlog and due to ship in 2018. CVD works closely with customers in the design phase to ensure adherence to specifications and requirements of end users. CVD’s vertically integrated engineering and manufacturing capabilities enable application-specific equipment that can be configured to suit a customer’s distinct research and production needs.

2D TMD semiconductors, including molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), tungsten diselenide (WSe2), and more exotic materials such as bismuth telluride (Bi2Te3), are the subject of vigorous research and development. CVD’s equipment provides the ability to produce atomically thin 2D films of optoelectronic semiconductor materials with diverse physical properties that are not achievable in bulk semiconductors. Exciting applications include flexible electronic and optoelectronic devices, biosensors, battery technology, valleytronics, and spintronics.
