Central Florida Nanofabrication Facility

STS ICP Etcher ASAMCO Reactive Ion Etcher

The Central Florida Nanofabrication Facility is a regional user facility which enables fabrication of state-of-the-art nanoscale electronic, mechanical, spintronic and optoelectronic devices for nanoscale fundamental and applied sciences. The facility is located on the fourth floor of the Physical Sciences building in a purpose-built 2800 square-foot facility containing an ISO class 5 (FED STD class 100) cleanroom. The facility’s capabilities to perform nitride and oxide chemical vapor deposition, deep reactive ion etching, metallization for high throughput lithography processes, and chip packaging are unique to the campus and enhances the other user facilities available on campus. The equipment list is:

  • E-beam evaporator
  • SAMCO Reactive Ion Etcher (RIE)
  • TRION ICP/RIE (MINILock II)
  • TRION PECVD (Orion II)
