Cleanrooms

Rapid Prototyping

The Rapid Prototyping Room (RPR) is a class 10,000 cleanroom designed for rapid prototyping of simple systems and for initial training of new cleanroom users. The RPR houses similar equipment to that in the main Nanofabrication facility, such as plasma tools, wet decks, optical lithography and metrology but allows more flexible working for the production of simple devices, including microfluidic chips. The facility also houses the two-photon lithography tool (Nanoscribe) that is used to produce three dimensional structures from resist materials on the nano-scale and environmental scanning electron microscope (Zeiss EVO SEM), which is able to image a wide variety of non-conducting materials and is specially designed to allow imaging in liquids, lending itself to MEMS and microfluidics research.
