Device Fabrication within the III-V Facility
Within the National Centre, responsibility for device fabrication is shared between Glasgow and Sheffield. A very wide variety of structures are available including 20nm gate FETs, photonic crystals, Mach-Zehnder interferometers, distributed feedback lasers, quantum cascade Fabry-Perot lasers etc. Glasgow has responsibility for nanoscale device fabrication, an area where it has many years leading experience, and for other devices where it has well established expertise. Further details are given in the following file: Glasgow. Sheffield is responsible for fabrication in support of growth and for fabrication in areas where it in turn has long-established capability. Again details of its capabilities are given at Sheffield.
As with all parts of the Facility, discussion with the relevant technical experts is encouraged at an early stage.
