Thin-film deposition / Device fabrication

Inert Atmosphere
Our nitrogen glovebox allows for work in an moisture and oxygen free environment. The glovebox contains a spin coater with adjustable acceleration and a thermal evaporator with three ports. Additionally, we can deposit materials using dip-coating and drop-casting.

Air Atmosphere
An additional spin coater with set acceleration is available in our chemistry lab's fume hood. We also have the ability to deposit via drop casting, dip coating, and doctor blading in air.

Our chemistry lab also contains a vacuum oven and tube furnace for annealing, heat treatments, and oxide growth. Both may be fitted to flow nitrogen over the sample during treatment.
