The University of Pittsburgh’s NanoScale Fabrication and Characterization Facility (NFCF) is a user facility in a 4,000 ft2 cleanroom environment (class 100, 1,000 and 10,000 areas). NFCF is designed to support fabrication and characterization of nanoscale materials and structures, and integration of devices at all length scales. The facility houses advanced equipment with core nano-level (20 nm or below) capability for fabrication and characterization, including an electron-beam lithography system, a dual-beam system, plasma etching, thin film deposition, TEM, multifunctional scanning probe station, and modular XRD.
