Nanofabrication and Clean-Room

Shared facilities operated by the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience (NCMN). The facility provides state-of-the-art instruments for designing, fabricating, characterizing and testing of complex nano/micro-scale structures and devices.  All these advanced tool sets are housed within the 4000 sq. ft. clean room at the Voelte-Keegan Nanoscience Research Center. The facility opens to all UNL researchers as well as external (including private sector) researchers for carrying out their research projects in physics, chemistry, nano/microelectronics, MEMs/NEMs, nano-bio, and other related and interdisciplinary areas.  Staff support is available for training, process consultation, and collaboration on new process development.
