Surrey NanoSystems Raises £4.5M in Third Funding
Surrey NanoSystems, a Newhaven, UK-based semiconductor-focused company, has raised £4.5m (approximately US$7.1m) in third funding.
The company intends to use the capital to commercialize an advanced dielectric thin film for insulation applications, and a process for growing carbon-based interconnections or ‘vias’.
Led by CEO David Wong and Chairman Lars McBride, Surrey NanoSystems develops processes and materials to support the use of nanomaterials in mass-market semiconductor fabrication, clean tech and renewable industries, and provides tools to support nanomaterial research and development at partner sites. It has developed a new class of high performance dielectric material for inter-layer or inter-metal insulation, which offers an advanced alternative to current ‘low k’ semiconductor insulation materials, resistance to the liquid chemicals employed in semiconductor processing.
