Assistant Professor David Estrada and Assistant Research Professor Lizandra Godwin recently published an article in the open access journal PLOS-One titled, “Open-source automated chemical vapor deposition system for the production of two-dimensional nanomaterials.”

An excerpt from the article’s abstract reads “The study of two-dimensional (2D) materials is a rapidly growing area within nanomaterials research. However, the high equipment costs, which include the processing systems necessary for creating these materials, can be a barrier to entry for some researchers interested in studying these novel materials. Such process systems include those used for chemical vapor deposition, a preferred method for making these materials. To address this challenge, this article presents the first open-source design for an automated chemical vapor deposition system that can be built for less than a third of the cost for a comparable commercial system.”
