Microelectronics Research Center (MiRC)

The Microelectronics Research Center (MiRC) provides expertise, facilities, infrastructure and teaming environments to enable and facilitate interdisciplinary research in microelectronics, integrated optoelectronics, and microsensors and actuators.

The MiRC, housed in a 100,000 square foot building and a 20,000 square foot annex, provides facilities including six electronic and optoelectronic materials labs, eight labs for microelectronics design and testing, eight labs for electronic device design and testing, and a 7,000 square foot cleanroom providing complete microfabrication facilities.

For more information please refer to the MiRc website.

Organic Chemistry Laboratories

Facilities for the synthesis and purification of organic materials as well as the characterization of structures using a variety of spectroscopic techniques.

For more information contact Seth Marder.


Organic Electronics Facility

Facilities for the purification and fabrication of organic materials and the fabrication and testing of organic photonic and electronic devices. The facility is equipped with an automated high vacuum deposition system with four organic sources and two high power sources for metals and oxides (co-deposition capabilities). It is integrated with a double glove box (one dry and one wet with integrated spin-coater) that enables the fabrication and testing of new devices in an inert atmosphere. A second glove box is equipped with a microprobe station and a semiconductor parameter analyzer.

The facility is fully equipped for the testing of organic light-emitting diodes, organic field-effect transistors, and organic solar cells.

For more information contact Bernard Kippelen.

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).
