Technology and Innovation Centre Cleanroom

Equipment/facility: Facility

Description

The Institute of Photonics operates an industry-standard cleanroom suite, currently located in the Technology and Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde. It comprises fabrication and test equipment for manufacture of micro-scale optoelectronic and photonic devices. All of this equipment is available for external access on a hands-on or serviced basis.

The primary use of the microfabrication facility in the Institute’s current research is production of customised GaN micro-LED arrays. However, the toolset is very versatile. It has also been used to fabricate InP and GaAs-based laser diodes, micro-optic components in diamond and sapphire, polymer flexible circuits, and bio-medical instrumentation, amongst other applications.
