The Nanoscale Fabrication and Characterization Facility

PINSE supports the Nanoscale Fabrication and Characterization Facility (NFCF), a 4,000-ft2 cleanroom user facility located in the sub-basement of Benedum Hall. The facility is divided into two sections, Characterization and Fabrication (Cleanroom).
