MicroElectronics Research


Our self-contained and dedicated Microelectronics Fabrication Cleanroom contains a range of specialized equipment which may be cost prohibitive to some companies yet offer benefits in terms of once-off or ongoing use. We can offer services such as Silicon Wafer Oxidation, Diffusion or Annealing. Photolithography and Chemical Etching along with Thin Film Deposition, either by thermal evaporation or sputtering of conductive and dielectric materials, for wafer patterning. An Ellipsometer offers layer thickness measurement and Device Testing is carried out using a probe station and Agilent Semiconductor test meters. The main equipment is listed below and supplemental to this are microscopes, an acid wet bench and a fume hood all in a Class 10000 Cleanroom with a Class 1000 Photolithography Area.
