e-Beam lithography Laboratory
This aims to demonstrate precise fabrication using lithography, how this is relevant to industrial manufacturing processes, and the problems introduced when scaling precision manufacture up to high throughput. Also, to demonstrate the principles involved in scientific research and how experiments must be designed for fabrication feasibility. This lab will investigate the fabrication of a test wafer, from design to verification. Students will work in a cleanroom and be a part of all manufacture stages including CAD, sample cleaning, spin coating, e-beam operation, developing, metal sputter, and microscope verification.
