Two-Photon Microfabrication Laboratory
Facilities for the patterning of materials with true three-dimensional (3D) spatial resolution and direct laser writing of arbitrary three-dimensional structures. The laboratory is equipped with a 3D-multiphoton lithography (3D-MPL) instrument capable of fabricating 3D microstructures and devices including photonic crystals, mechanical structures with movable or interlocking parts, microchannel and microfluidic devices, and biocompatible templates. This instrument is extremely versatile in terms of its potential to active photochemistry in various spectral regions (350-510 nm and 690-1020 nm), its ability to fabricate large area structures (~1 cm2) in reasonable time periods, and to produce features with nanoscale resolution (~65 nm).

Organic Electronic and Active Materials Scale-up Facility
The facility and its staff support researcher to provide government laboratories and companies with a sufficient quantity of new materials for system-level evaluation and testing. These materials will enable future joint development research programs to speed-up their use in commercial applications.
The main equipment at the facility currently includes a 20 liter rotary evaporator, a 10 liter reactor with temperature control from -70 oC to 200 oC, and larger scale purification equipment including a chromatography system with 100-200 gram capacity. The reactor and chromatography equipment are located in a walk-in fume hood with double volume spill containment for researcher safety.
