Class 100 and 1000 Clean Rooms

The UCSB Nanofabrication facility cleanroom consists of over 12000 ft2 of class 100 and 1000 clean floor space, in a bay and chase configuration, to host a wide variety of thin-film processing equipment.  The cleanroom consists of 2 class 100 bays for optical and electron beam lithography and 5 class 1000 bays for other process equipment.  A complete description of our tools is available on the equipment web page.  A spacious gowning room accomodates up to 350 researchers at any given time and each researcher is given space and utilities for sample and small tool storage.  The cleanroom provides bunnysuits, chemicals, source materials for thin film processes, boxes for storage, cleanroom notebooks, and other small ancillaries as part of the recharge rate.  Safety procedures and systems are in place to ensure a safe working environment.  Training on all systems is required to use our facility.  Equipment sign-up is done via a web-based system.  Some pictures of the facility are below.
