Microfabrication

fig 1

Microfabrication facilities, located on the first floor of the Multidisciplinary Research Buildings (MRB), contains 2,400 ft2 of cleanroom space, 900 ft2 for a machining room, 400 ft2 of wet lab space and offices. This facility is under the direction of Drs. Susan Lunte and Karen Nordheden. The facility is available to KU researchers in all departments and provides training to new investigators and graduate students in the use of microfabrication procedures and equipment. The facility provides capabilities for photolithography, plasma etching of high surface ratio elements, glass etching, laser ablation, metal deposition, dielectric material deposition and microchip characterization. For instrumentation information, please visit the Adams Institute Microfabrication Facility.
