N105 MILLENNIUM SCI COMPLEX
UNIVERSITY PARK, PA 16802
An area of the cleanroom is dedicated to depositing piezoelectric, pyroelectric, and ferroelectric complex oxide films from sol-gel solutions developed by researchers at Penn State University. Films include PZT (lead zirconate titanate), PLZT (lead lanthanum zirconate titanate), PNN-PZT (lead nickel niobate - lead zirconate titanate), and lead titanate. Many others have been used and others can be developed. View the elements desposited on films in the Nanofab:

Polyurethane (PU) stamps: PU is used when working with certain "inks" such as some PZT based sol-gel. Stamps are usually cast from PDMS sub-molds.
