The UNT Material Research Facility: Nanofabrication Cleanroom is maintained by the University of North Texas to support the research needs of faculty and students from a broad range of engineering and science disciplines. The cleanroom occupies approximately 3000 sq. ft. of clean space and includes a Class 100 lithography area and a Class 10,000 wet and dry processing and characterization area. Initial capabilities will emphasize nano/micro device development, Photomask fabrication, OLED device fabrication and thin film techniques. Highlights of the tool list include:
- Electron Beam Lithography/Scanning Electron Microscope
- Ion Assist Electon Beam and Sputtering Combo Thin Film Deposition System
- KLA-Tenco Profiler
- Heidelberg DWL 66s Maskless Laser Lithography System
- Laurell chemical processing stations
- Reactive Ion Etchers (RIE)
- Trovato organic deposition system
