Open to all researchers at the university and accessible for external organisations as well, our cleanroom enables wafer-scale micro and nano fabrication. It comprises several class-1000-rated rooms and houses process tools for lithography, dry etch, deposition, chemical processing, post processing and characterisation. These tools are used for rapid prototyping of a range of devices, including photonic structures, microfluidics, micro-lenses, integrated circuits and MEMS. Equipment and specifications listed below.
