Micro and Nanofabrication Services

From Concept to Characterization

Microsystems are in use in a wide variety of areas. Special equipment and processes housed in an ultra-clean environment are required for the fabrication and characterization of these systems. Micro and nanosystems are often designed using numeric modeling and simulations.MNS1

Specialized fabrication techniques like doping, lithography, thin film deposition or growth and etching are needed for fabrication. Highly specialized equipment like Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM), Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM), Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), X-ray Photo-electron Spectroscopy (XPS) and X-ray Diffraction (XRD) are needed to characterize micro and nanosystems.


With state-of-the-art fabrication and characterization facilities, highly qualified personnel with expertise in design, fabrication, packaging and characterization, the Birck Nanotechnology Center is the place to work on the development of new systems and technologies.
