The Utah Nanofab encompasses a class 100/1000/10,000 cleanroom, packaging, and test areas. Commissioned in 2012, the new 18,000 square foot facility provides the specialized custom-built infrastructure, equipment, processes, and expertise necessary for researchers and companies to design, build, and package revolutionary micro and nanoscale devices. Capabilities include device modeling, design layout, mask fabrication, thin film deposition, patterning, and device packaging.
The facility and staff gladly serves researchers and companies from the campus and beyond, including faculty and researchers from regional institutions as well as companies who use the facilities to generate proof-of-concept and data supporting new product ideas.
Visionary ideas and inspired creativity have helped the Utah Nanofab become a world leader in the fabrication of neural prosthetics, biomedical microfluidic systems and biosensor chips. The discoveries made in the Nanofab help create life-saving medical devices, faster microchips, and more efficient energy systems, resulting in many scientific publications and new companies.
