Air Products Forms Research Collaboration with Chinese University

August 24, 2011

Air Products says it has initiated a joint research and development project with the sustainable energy laboratory of the China University of Geosciences (Wuhan, China) to accelerate the development of materials for the microelectronics industry. The project will enable better understanding of the chemical mechanisms responsible for the deposition of thin films, and the study will help guide the selection of new chemical precursors that address a wide variety of needs for next generation logic and memory devices, Air Products says.

“By leveraging the computational modeling capabilities of the China University of Geosciences, we are accelerating new product development to fulfill the requests we are receiving for electronics materials from our industry partners and customers in China and Asia,” says Ed Shober, director for advanced integration materials at Air Products.

Air Products has established a longstanding research collaboration program with the sustainable energy laboratory of the China University of Geosciences since 2006. In the past five years, several U.S. patents and patent applications were filed and a number of research articles were published in high-profile scientific journals as a result of this collaboration, Air Products says.
