Fabrication & Prototyping

Our open-access fabrication and prototyping capabilities include micro- and nanofabrication equipment and associated know-how to help you develop novel materials and new prototype devices.

Our past work includes fabrication and prototyping in:

  • Microfluidics
  • MEMS
  • Sensors
  • Photonics
  • Coatings
  • Membrane films
  • Gratings

We provide training and support from our experienced staff of scientists and engineers who maintain a diverse set of equipment and processes to meet your needs in lithography, thin film growth and deposition, and materials and process characterization.
