Lab Spotlight: NIST - NanoFab

NanoFab Tour e1410190146305
The NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology's (CNST) shared-use NanoFab gives researchers economical access to and training on a commercial state-of-the-art tool set required for cutting-edge nanotechnology development. Here, Dr. Robert Celotta, director of the CNST (far right), briefs University of California, Irvine Dean of Engineering Dr. Gregory Washington (second from right) and his staff on research capabilities for users of the NanoFab. The NanoFab provides researchers with extensive tool and process development, hands-on training, and access to NIST-wide expertise in nanoscience and nanotechnology, with a simple application process designed to get projects started in a few weeks. Over 65 major tools are available for electron beam lithography, photolithography, nano–imprint lithography, laser writing and mask generation, field emission scanning electron microscopy, metal deposition, plasma etching, chemical vapor deposition, atomic layer deposition, and silicon micro/nano-machining. CNST supports the U.S. nanotechnology enterprise from discovery to production by providing industry, academia, NIST, and other government agencies with access to world-class nanoscale measurement and fabrication methods and technology.
