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 Installs Raith Voyager Electron-Beam Nanolithography System

The state-of-the-art and high-performance instrument, Raith Voyager Electron-Beam Nanolithography System has now been installed in the UIMF ISO 5 cleanroom (IATL 172). The tool with a 50kV electron-beam column, less than 2.5 nm beam size and 50 MHz pattern generator can pattern features down to 10 nm or smaller over large areas in the millimeter and centimeter range and can provide a pattern placement accuracy of sub-10 nm. The tool is now available for device fabrication and research in Nanoscale Science and Engineering.
