This seminar will discuss several examples of how Angstrom Engineering has helped scale research throughput to increase the rate of discovery in the fields of OLEDs, perovskite solar cell, and Josephson-junction fabrication.

Overview

Dr. Jonathan Boulanger
Angstrom Engineering

Scaling Thin Film Research Throughput: From OLEDs to Solar Cells to Qubits.

Abstract:

Angstrom Engineering designs and produces physical vapor deposition (PVD) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) equipment, with a focus on academic and industrial research as well as small scale production markets. As technologies mature towards commercialization, so do the throughput requirements for research. This seminar will discuss several examples of how Angstrom Engineering has helped scale research throughput to increase the rate of discovery in the fields of OLEDs, perovskite solar cell, and Josephson-junction fabrication.

Biography:

Jonathan Boulanger attended Queen’s University where he obtained a B.A Sc. In Engineering Physics in 2008. He then completed his PhD degree in 2013 in the Engineering Physics Department at McMaster University. His graduate work, supervised by Dr. Ray LaPierre, involved developing new methods for growing patterned III-V nanowire arrays on GaAs and Si substrates as well as understanding transient growth behaviors in GaAs-GaP nanowire heterostructures. After graduation, Jonathan was part of a start-up company focused on developing a two-junction III-V nanowire on silicon solar cell. From 2015 – 2019, Jonathan worked with the McMaster Industry Liaison Office (MILO) and The Forge to help researchers commercialize their technologies through licensing or starting up a company. In 2019, Jonathan joined Angstrom Engineering in Kitchener, Ontario as part of their Test & Process team, where he worked to test new physical vapor deposition equipment and develop new processes and technologies for customers around the world.
