Cleanroom fabrication facility

The cleanroom fabrication facility at SCPS houses a range of microfabrication and inspection equipment.

Specialised cleanroom equipment

The cleanroom fabrication facility is purpose-built for the fabrication of novel electronic devices.

The facility contains a full range of microfabrication and inspection equipment including:

  • a mask aligner for lithographic patterning
  • an evaporator and sputter coater capable of depositing thin films of metals and dielectrics
  • a reactive ion etcher
  • an optical microscope and a Dektak profilometer.

Other equipment

The laboratory also houses a four-probe testing station and a parameter analyser capable of femtoamp resolution.

We also have spin coaters, fume hoods, and a bench-top plasma system for substrate cleaning.

Collaborations

We collaborate with the Nanostructure Engineering Science and Technology (NEST) facility at the University of Canterbury and the cleanroom microfabrication facility at the University of Auckland Microfab.
