Firstnano chemical vapor deposition system

A firstnano chemical vapor deposition (CVD) system has been installed in the Michigan Technological University Microfabrication Shared facility (MFF). This system allows for the growth of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) using hydrogen and ethylene and an iron catalyst. This capability was brought into the MFF by Dr. Parisa Abadi through her start up package and has generously allowed other faculty and researchers at MTU access to this system. If you would like to use the system, or would like like more information please contact Dr. Parisa Abadi (pabadi at mtu dot edu) or Chito Kendrick (
