Georgia Tech's clean room tools are open to the public

Georgia Tech’s Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology  is part of the  National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure, and at its core, the NNCI exists to help scientists and engineers from around the country access the state-of-the-art resources necessary to participate in the nanotechnology revolution.

Whether you are studying Microelectronics, developing QA procedures for industry, or if you are interested in learning more about nanoscience, the largest cleanroom Laboratory in the Southeast United States available. We strive to provide as many research tools as we can for the current generation of researchers, and we also strive to make these tools available to inspire the next.

For more information please reach out directly to the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology at Georgia Tech.

Constructed Using the Cleanrooms at Georgia Tech

Nanoscribe Photonics GT1 3D Lithography system

This nanoscribe is the highest-resolution commercially available 3D Printer. Using 2-photon polymerization, it creates building blocks (voxels) in the nanoscale. We used this to build the monument.

Hitachi 8230 CFE-SEM

The flag was imaged using SEM analysis which uses a cold field electron emitter to get incredible surface detail. This tool can be used to look at single atoms.

OPTEC Femtosecond laser

The silicon wafer base of the monument was machined using this laser tool that offers femtosecond laser ablation.
