Vapor Deposition and Measurement

New fume hood rounds off lab installations | January 28, 2003

The addition of a fume hood makes the vapor deposition laboratory nearly complete. Also being installed are an electronically controlled spinner, a computer to control the deposition process, and "safe" lights for use with photoresistive materials. The upgraded scanning probe microscope will be used for measuring and analyzing the deposited film, using atomic force microscopy. Research will include photolithography, in conjunction with superconductive materials. More information and a slideshow are in the works.
