25-26 April 2018 at NIST, Gaithersburg, MD.
Dopant atoms placed with atomic precision into tunable arrays using scanning tunneling microscopy can be made to display electronic and photonic properties across a wide range of structures for 2D quantum metamaterials. The workshop will explore useful commonalities between fabrication, theoretical prediction, and alternative approaches to tunable quantum materials, including cold-atom realizations.
National Nanomanufacturing Network Workshop
30-31 October 2017
John will be attending and speaking at the Workshop mentioned in the document (linked below) describing Zyvex Labs approach of Digital Atomic scale Fabrication.
MRS Webinar on Single Atom Fabrication with Beams and Probes
27 September 2017, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Josh Ballard, Director of APM at Zyvex Labs presented a webinar on Scanning Tunneling Microscopy-based Fabrication
The two current reigning paradigms enabling nanotechnology are scanning probe microscopy and molecular machine devices. Presently, the nanoscience and nanotechnology communities are seeing the emergence of a third paradigm—the use of the atomically focused beam of a scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) to control and direct matter on the atomic scale. The September issue of MRS Bulletin presents advances in electron- and ion-beam-based atomic fabrication on surfaces, in layered materials, and in three dimensions. The talks in this webinar expand upon the articles in the September MRS Bulletin issue.

- the binary events are the making and breaking of chemical bonds,
- there is some tolerance in the process that makes or breaks chemical bonds,
- there is a spatial digital address grid which is a crystal lattice,
- the output of a digital process can be the input for another digital process
- there are error detection and correction processes

Zyvex Labs donates to Prof. Joseph Lyding of the Univ. of Illinois one of their ZyVector STM Lithography control Systems. The ZyVector system allows users to pattern in the sub-nm regime which makes it the highest resolution automated lithography system that is presently commercially available. Prof. Lyding through his longstanding support of Zyvex Labs has had a significant role in helping develop the product according to Dr. John Randall, President of Zyvex Labs. “We believe that there is no one on the planet better suited to make use of the ZyVector tool than Joe Lyding and we are pleased to donate this tool to Joe and the University of Illinois.”
Apr 21, 2017 at University of Texas at Austin
Dr. John Randall, President, Zyvex Labs will give a Seminar at the Microelectronics and Engineering Research Center at the University of Texas. The Seminar entitled “The Next Digital Revolution – Digital Atomic Scale Manufacturing” will be given Friday, April 21, 2017, at 3:30 PM CDT at MER 160, Room 2.114, 10100 Burnet Road, Austin TX 78758. This is part of a Seminar Series held by the National Science Foundation’s Engineering Research Center. This NSF Nanosystems ERC entitled Nanomanufacturing Systems for mobile Computing and Energy Technologies (NASCENT http://nascent-erc.org) is a partnership between The University of Texas at Austin, The University of New Mexico, The University of California at Berkeley, Indian Institute of Science, and Seoul National University. Zyvex Labs is an Industrial Partner of NASCENT and Dr. Randall is co-Chair of the Industrial Advisory Board.
Feb 7, 2017 at Molecular Foundry, Berkeley California
John N. Randall, President of Zyvex Labs, will speak on February 7, 2017 at 11AM, as part of the Molecular Foundry’s Winter Seminar Series at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley California. Invitations go to a very limited number of important scientists to give a seminar to the Molecular Foundry community. The title of his talk will be: “Digital Atomic Scale Fabrication and the Path to Manufacturing”. The Molecular Foundry is One of the World’s Premier Nanoscience Research Institutions. Supported by the Department of Energy Office of Basic Energy Sciences (BES) through their Nanoscale Science Research Center (NSRC) program, the Molecular Foundry is a national User Facility for nanoscale science serving hundreds of academic, industrial and government scientists around the world each year.
We attend many scientific conferences each year to present our work and keep up with the advances in our fields of research. In particular, we follow research in other methods of nano fabrication and atomic-scale patterning and fabrication methods for quantum computers.
