Expertise & Equipment

The University houses two micro/nano fabrication facilities—one in the College of Engineering and the other in the Wyant College of Optical Sciences. These centers, combined with world-class metrology and imaging facilities, serve the UArizona community as the workhorses for numerous extramurally funded semiconductor and microelectronics programs.

For tomorrow’s components and devices, including nanophotonics, nonlinear optics, 2D materials, next-generation transistors and quantum communication, these facilities provide a vertically integrated manufacturing space to support a combined basic and applied research portfolio matched nowhere else.
