Riber gets research system order

University of Chicago orders fully automated new generation Compact 21 system

MBE specialist Riber has announced an order from the University of Chicago for a fully automated new generation Compact 21 system (with enhanced cell and equipment capabilities, including electron-gun).

This system will be placed at the Argonne Research Laboratories in Lemont, IL, as part of a joint research project on new oxides and oxychalcogenide materials deposition between Argonne and the University of Chicago.

Argonne is a National Laboratory depending on US Department of Energy's (DoE), Office of Science whose main fields of research are in Photovoltaics and Energy Storage applications. The focus of the group is concerning new energy conversion and power-efficient energy technologies.

The Compact 21 Cluster is described by the company as one of the market's best performing thin-film deposition research systems. It has been chosen for its high level of flexibility, its reliability, and its ability to be run remotely to share with research groups all over the world.

This order, recorded on February 17th, should be delivered to Argonne National Laboratory before the end of 2016.
