- The James Watt Nanofabrication Centre @ Glasgow houses over £20M of nanofabrication
tools in a 750 m2clean room run as a pseudo-industrial operation by 14 technicians and 4 PhD level research technologists.
- Glasgow has over 30 years experience of delivering micro- and nano-fabrication (and in particular electron-beam lithography) to develop solutions in processing, nanotechnology, nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, mm-wave & terahertz, bioengineering, biotechnology, lab-on-a-chip, cleantech & energy, photovoltaics, security & defence and a host of other applications.
- The Centre undertakes fundamental, applied and commercial research, development and small production delivered using a vast array of developed process modules and background IP which can provide integrated processes to deliver components, devices, circuits, systems and solutions.
- The Centre presently collaborates with over 90 different international universities and research institutes from around the world.
- The Centre presently has over £53M of active research grants undertaking micro- and nano-fabrication in Si-technology, MEMS, III-Vs (GaAs, InP, InGaAs, InGaAsP, GaN, etc.), piezoelectric and magnetic materials.
- Kelvin Nanotechnology Ltd. (KNT) provides commercial access to the centre, facilities and expertise for industry, governments, institutes and also universities. Over 250 companies have received nanofabrication services delivered by KNT.
