The Wisconsin Center for Applied Microelectronics (WCAM)

The Wisconsin Center for Applied Microelectronics (WCAM) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison provides a research facility for microfabrication technologies, products and innovations. In order to give students a state-of-the-art education and to maintain leading-edge research programs, we continue to improve this advanced laboratory.

WCAM maintains a suite of semiconductor and microfabrication processing equipment in a cleanroom laboratory. Access to the lab and to all equipment is available to qualified users from the University of Wisconsin, other education institutions, or industry. WCAM is a cost recovery facility.

The laboratory is located on the third floor of the Engineering Centers Building on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Click here for a searchable UW campus map, or return to the WCAM home page for more contact information.
