DSN-I Seminar "State of the Nanofab"
As a premier multidisciplinary, open, and shared research lab, the Carnegie Mellon Nanofabrication Facility, or Nanofab, is a nanomanufacturing hub that plays a vital role in major research thrusts for the College and the University, namely in Information Technology, Internet of Things, Energy, and Life Sciences. The Nanofab serves a broad community at Carnegie Mellon and beyond, providing equipment, services, and process support for the invention, synthesis, and fabrication of new materials and devices in the areas of magnetics and spintronics, MEMS and NEMS, optics and photonics, functional oxides, 2-dimensional materials, bioelectronics, and much more. This talk will focus on the current state of the Nanofab as it relates to both research, equipment capabilities and user interface. In particular, we will highlight the transformative impact that the new Claire and John Bertucci Nanotechnology Laboratory will have for the CMU community and the region. The new facility will play a critical role in facilitating housing of cutting-edge nanomanufacturing equipment as well as creating new synergies and means for research collaboration across campus. We will discuss these new capabilities and some of the future initiatives we would like to purse to revolutionize nanoscale science and engineering within Carnegie Mellon and the region.
