an efficient silicon smelting process and optimized crystallization process management. Further progress has also been made with the capacity of the multi- crystalline ingot furnace: the high-performance furn- ace can be utilized for up to 650 kg (1,433 Pound) of polysilicon without major modifications. http://www.centrotherm-pv.com
VD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV), and Graphene Laboratories, Inc., launched a
new line of Chemical Vapor Deposited (CVD) Gra- phene products. These products include large-area single layer graphene films grown on copper foils or copper-coated wafers. This is the first truly two dimensional material that has become commercially available on the market. CVD Equipment Corpora- tion will manufacture single-layer CVD grown gra- phene based materials and products and Graphene Laboratories, Inc. will provide marketing of the new products with the CVDGraphene™ trademark for sale worldwide.
“We are excited to offer single-layer CVD grown Graphene products. We have received many re- quests regarding this product from researchers and engineers from around the globe. Finally, it has become commercially available,” said Dr. Elena Poly- akova, President and CEO of Graphene Laboratories, Inc. “We truly believe this is a critical milestone on the road of largescale production of graphene-based products.”
Graphene Laboratories, Inc. is a spinout of Columbia University, a leading center for Graphene studies. The primary goal of Graphene Laboratories, Inc., located in the heart of Boston’s high-tech area, is to apply fundamental science and technology to
bring functional Graphene materials and devices to market. The Company was founded by a group of experts in the field of nanomaterials, who possess extensive experience in characterization of structu- ral and electronic properties of Graphene and deep fundamental and practical knowledge of processing Graphene-based materials. Graphene Laboratories Inc. also operates the Graphene Supermarket™ website.
Furthermore, CVD Equipment Corporation has re- ceived an order exceeding $2.5 million from a major aviation component supplier for multiple production thin film CVD coating systems.
The CVD/First Nano Division of CVD Equipment Corporation has received further orders during the month of September, 2010 for approximately $2.5 million from a number of institutions including the University of Illinois, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory for products sold under our EasyTube™, EasyGas™ and EasyExhaust™ brand. CVD Equipment received approximately $7.7 million in new orders during the three (3) months ending September 30, 2010 and approximately $17 million in new orders for the nine (9) months ending September 30, 2010. This surpasses the $2.3 and $7.8 million of new orders received during the three (3) and nine (9) months ending September 30, 2009 by 234% and 119% respectively. The orders received during this period also exceeded all January through September periods in the history of CVD. http://www.cvdequipment.com http://www.graphenelab.com http://www.graphene-supermarket.com
