Our mission is to provide a top-rate research fabrication facility for micro and nano-scale processing.  UCSB and other academic and industrial researchers utilize the facility through a recharge system that allows the laboratory to operate and keep high quality professional staff for facility and equipment support as well as expert process consultation and hands-on fabrication assistance.  The facility is committed to a high level of professional staff support and to increasing the capabilities of the laboratory with regular improvement of existing equipment and aquisition of high quality used and new micro and nanofabrication systems.  We welcome academic and industrial researchers to use our facility.
