Nova-Kem Teams with the University of Texas on Atomic Layer Deposition Study
Seward, IL (May, 2012) – Illinois based Rapid Precursor Development™ firm, Nova-Kem, LLC, has initiated a study on characterizing specific precursors targeted for use in the semiconductor industry with Dr. Yves Chabal, Head of the Materials Science and Engineering department at the University of Texas at Dallas. “This collaboration jumpstarts our fresh initiative to play a major role on the international stage of high tech material development,” said Nova-Kem founder and CEO, Reno Novak. “A recipient of the 2012 AVS Medard W. Welch Award for his contributions in this field, Dr. Chabal is one of the world's foremost authorities on semiconductor surfaces and materials — areas that are central to developing future generations of microchips – and I can’t think of a better individual to align ourselves with ,” Novak went on to say. “It is my hope and expectation that this will be just the first of many in a series of collaborations with Dr. Chabal and the University of Texas at Dallas.” Dr. Chabal’s efforts will be supported by Dr. Marek Boleslawski, Nova-Kem’s Director of Product Development and a scientist with global prominence in his own right.
About Dr. Yves Chabal
Dr. Chabal is the first individual to hold the Texas Instruments Distinguished University Chair in Nanoelectronics. The new chair is a permanent endowment for the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, where Chabal leads the materials science and engineering faculty. It is the first chair to be established at UT Dallas in nanoelectronics, a field of science, whose goal is to control individual atoms and molecules to create computer chips and other devices that are much smaller than current technologies permit.
