HHV and C-MET announce strategic partnership

The alliance between HHV and C-MET, Pune allows easy exchange of information.

Hind High Vacuum Co. Pvt. Ltd. (HHV) and Center for Materials for Electronics Technology (C-MET), Pune has announced a strategic alliance for developing, manufacturing, and supplying next generation technologies within the first National Center for Quantum Material Technology (NCQMT) initiated at C-MET, Pune and funded by Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India.

The direct connection between HHV’s design, in-house vacuum equipment manufacturing, process development, and C-MET Pune scientific expertise, allows both to quickly optimize product designs through rapid design, simulation cycles, and system development with inbuilt dedicated processes. The tools envisaged for the development are niche cutting-edge technologies for growing ‘quantum materials’ are Microwave Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition, Thermal Low-Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition, Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition and Inductively Coupled Plasma – Reactive Ion Etching.

Prasanth Sakhamuri, Managing Director, HHV, said, “The alliance between HHV and C-MET, Pune allows easy exchange of information, so design and simulation run in parallel. Thus, this results in one of its kind associations for indigenous next generational technology development as part of ‘Make in India’ with ‘Made in India’ products which is a step closer towards Atmanirbhar Bharat.”

 “C-MET is a pioneer in materials technologies that work with industries to promote the ecosystem.  Partnership with HHV in the NCQMT will promote the materials technology towards commercialization. The alliance will have mutual co-operation in all aspects of materials technology in the near future for vivid applications,” said Dr Bharath Kale, Director General, C-MET. 

Quantum Materials encompass materials exhibiting strong electronic correlations, electronic ordering such as superconducting states, magnetic ordering, topological effects, and unconventional band dispersion. On the microscopic level, these materials exhibit exotic electronic properties due to the alteration of the basic four degrees of freedom: charge, spin, orbit and lattice. In materials research, quantum materials challenge current theory and have a level of complexity that requires sophisticated, powerful tools and methods to synthesize, understand, and manipulate them. The potential benefits of quantum materials to energy, quality-of-life, and the economy are staggering.
