Graphene, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), silicon nanowires (SiNWs) and many other nanomaterials and thin films can be produced on flexible, often metallic, substrates using chemical vapour deposition (CVD) based processing. CVD tools can be implemented in many different ways to produce a wide range of material compositions and geometries (OD, 1D, 2D and 3D).

Most traditional style CVD tools are limited in production volume
