The University of Iowa


IMPORTANT: The Optical Science and Technology Center and Microfabrication Facility are being retired after fall 2018 and their services reconfigured under the new Iowa Center for Research, Exploration, and Advanced Technology in Engineering and Sciences (Iowa-CREATES) and Materials Analysis, Testing, and Fabrication (MATFab) in the Iowa Advanced Technology Laboratories (IATL) in spring 2019. As a result, the OSTC/UIMF site will eventually be taken down. Until then, please visit the Iowa-CREATES Website at https://iowacreates.research.uiowa.edu/, or read more about the new center at https://research.uiowa.edu/impact/news/ui-gears-new-improved-research-center-engineering-and-physical-sciences.

UIMF to host IEEE tour and demonstration

UIMF Laboratories, Iowa Advanced Technology Laboratories (IATL)

Nanofabrication is the meeting ground of engineering, biology, physics, medicine and chemistry. Most of these disciplines converge at the nanoscale towards the same building blocks, principles, tools of investigation and fabrication. The University of Iowa Microfabrication Facility (UIMF) offers a common platform for the convergence of multiple scientific and engineering disciplines and facilitates collaborative research with strategic partners and information exchange. The UIMF is an interdisciplinary central research facility and service center that provides access to state-of-the-art equipment in the areas of micro and nanofabrication, metrology, device characterization and offers expertise and advanced training courses in the same related areas. It is an open-research facility serving the academic, industrial and governmental researchers across campus and beyond. Key research areas enabled include micro- and nanofabrication techniques, optical devices, sensors, micro/nano-electronic devices, plasmonics, graphene electronics, photovoltaic, bio-medical and micro- and nanofluidics.

Hands-on demos and lab tours: Visitors will wear cleanroom suits to visit the lab where the state-of-the-art tools on nanofabrication that include thin-film, etching and lithography are housed. Visitors will be provided with hands-on demonstrations on various tools and processes.

Space is limited to 40 attendees therefore registration is REQUIRED.  Click Here to Register
