Welcome to Applied Nanotech for graphene-based stripper foil and beam target materials
Graphene-based carbon stripper foils (extraction foils) made with graphene or graphene enhanced with carbon nanotubes (CNT) are manufactured and sold by Applied Nanotech, Inc. in Austin TX.
Lifetime: Lifetimes exceeding 7,500 µA-hrs have been routinely documented on some PETtrace cyclotrons (depending on operating parameters).
Size: Area densities of 0.1 to 1.0 mg/cm2 are standard. Higher mass density foils are available on custom orders. The foils are cut, packaged and delivered to customer specifications.
Foil Mounting: Stripper foils can be delivered as bare foils, cut to size, or mounted on carbon or aluminum frames to customer specifications.
Competitive pricing: Large order discount rates available.
Isotope targets: Combining our ability to make carbon foils and expertise in nanoparticle-based inks and pastes for printed electronics, we have produced and delivered targets that incorporate nanoparticles of target materials embedded in a carbon foil matrix. With this approach, thin targets can be made from materials that are not otherwise easily made into thin target formats. Targets of rhenium, hafnium, tungsten, bismuth, chromium, and others have been delivered. using this approach. The key advantage is the near-100% material efficiency of incorporating the isotopes into the carbon matrix.
