Keithley, CNSI Form Research Partnership

Photonics.com
Sep 2007
Keithley Instruments Inc., a Cleveland, Ohio-based maker of test and measurement instruments, has announced a partnership with the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) to support research in nanotechnology and nanoscience technologies for instrumentation and measurement in the semiconductor indsutry. Keithley will join the CNSI partners program at the associate level. The program supports the institute's efforts to cultivate collaborations with companies interested in working to enable rapid commercialization of nanosystems. Keithley will work with CNSI faculty members to advance research initiatives and will provide technical support. A variety of Keithley instruments, such as its 4200-SCS semiconductor characterization system, will be used for collaborative research at CNSI. "Keithley brings to our facility advanced measurement capabilities that will help move our research forward," said Kang Wang, professor of electrical engineering at UCLA. "Its sensitive test technology is well suited for applications such as current voltage characterization of carbon nanotube electronics, molecular electronics, nanoscale field-effect devices and materials research."


GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
