Lord Broers officially opened the new James Watt Nanofabrication Centre at Glasgow University today.
The new facility within Glasgow University, centred on the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, will be the focus of interdisciplinary research at the nanometre scale and brings together many different research groups working in engineering and the physical and life sciences.
The Centre has comprehensive micro and nanofabrication facilities housed within 750m2 of cleanroom space including one of the most advanced large area high resolution electron beam lithography tools in the world. Glasgow University has been engaged in micro and nanofabrication for more than thirty years and has a wealth of accumulated expertise in core fabrication technologies.
The Centre opens in the same week as multi-million pound funding for a major nanoelectronics research project at the University of Glasgow was announced.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funding, worth over £4m, is a huge boost to the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre.
