Nanoscale Fabrication and Characterization Facility
The Nanoscale Fabrication and Characterization Facility (NFCF) is supported by the integrated, multidisciplinary organization, the Gertrude E. and John M. Petersen Institute of NanoScience and Engineering.
The NFCF is a 4,000-ft cleanroom facility located in the sub-basement of Benedum Hall. The facility houses state-of-the-art equipment with core nano-level fabrication/analysis capability. Several features make the capabilities of NFCF unique, including five different types of lithography (Optical, EBL, Dual Beam, DipPen, and Imprint), a field-emission microprobe (EPMA), and a transmission electron microscope (TEM).
NFCF is open for University use; this interdisciplinary facility acts as a catalyst for further collaborations among various Pitt schools.
