Feb 2008
EV Group (EVG), a supplier of wafer-bonding and lithography equipment for semiconductor and packaging, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), silicon-on-insulator and nanotechnology markets, announced it has received an order from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), in Bombay, India, for two MEMS-focused systems: an EVG620TB bond and mask aligner and an EVG501 wafer bonder. They will be used in a new Indian government-supported automotive MEMS R&D project that ITT is conducting with the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, which previously bought identical EV equipment. The new EVG systems are slated for installation this month at IIT Bombay's Mumbai facility. EVG is based in St. Florian, Austria, with subsidiaries in Tempe, Ariz.; Albany, N.Y.; Yokohama and Fukuoka, Japan; and Chung-Li, Taiwan. The Centre of Excellence in Nanoelectronics at IIT Bombay conducts research in nanoscale devices and microfabricated sensors.


GLOSSARY
nanotechnology
The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
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...
