The Notre Dame Nanofabrication Facility provides a comprehensive suite of state-of-the-art equipment for designing and manufacturing integrated circuits and devices with geometries of a few nanometers. NDNF researchers—which include internal and external academic and corporate clients—explore a wide range of materials and processes, including silicon-related electronic devices, compound semiconductors, zinc selenide nanowires, carbon nanotubes, graphene, and organic polymer-based materials.
The mission of the LNF is to provide effective, efficient, safe, and socially responsible access to advanced nanofabrication equipment and expertise thereby promoting, enabling, and encouraging cutting-edge education, research and business development from materials and individual process steps to entire systems.
Open to both Boston College and External Users, this laboratory is home to over 30 high-end micro and nanoscale instrumentation systems worth several million dollars.
Comprised of 1,500 square feet of Class 1,000 and Class 10,000 cleanroom spaces, the lab enables highly sensitive materials and devices to be fabricated free from contaminants. In addition, there is over 2,000 square feet of service and support space. The lab is supported by an air handling unit that completely cleans and renews all the air in the facility every 45 seconds.
