The NCSU Nanofabrication Facility provides users with a broad range of nanofabrication capabilities to support a diverse set of projects.

The facility houses virtually all standard thin film processing tools. The facility serves as a melting pot for a community of top-notch researchers from academia, government labs and industry representing a variety of disciplines.

The vast majority of users prefer to come on-site for hands-on access to the facility. Users with well-defined projects can also have their work performed by our experienced staff.
