Characterization in the Nanofab


Browse through the most common techniques used by researchers in the Nanofab. Not all the resources are in the cleanroom, but nearly all are located in the the same building as the Nanofab cleanroom in the Millennium Science Complex (MSC). Regardless of location they all fall under the MRI and the unified research instrumentation, open-access model and billing system.

  • Optical Microscopy
  • Ellipsometry
  • Profilometer
  • EDS
  • Sample Prep
  • Electrical

Other Techniques

If you require additional characterization, there are plenty of other techniques available within the Materials Characterization Laboratory (MCL). They include:

  • Confocal Raman spectroscopy
  • Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
  • Utraviolet - Visible - Near Infrared spectroscopy (UV-Vis-NIR)
  • Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM)
  • Near-Field Optical Microscopy (NSOM)
  • X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
  • Orientation Imaging Microscopy (OIM)
