The EPSRC National Centre for III-V Technologies plays a central role in enabling world class research in UK universities. It has wide ranging capabilities in epitaxy (MBE and MOCVD) and device fabrication. This web site provides a description of our capabilities, main achievements and how to access the Facility. As well as supporting UK university research we play an equally significant role in enabling developments in UK industry.
Our mission is to provide collaborative access to world class expertise and facilities, thus enabling top-rate scientific research in the physical, engineering and biomedical sciences. This is achieved by the provision of state-of-the-art epitaxial materials and characterization, advanced technologies for device fabrication, and the provision of custom opto-electronic and electronic devices.
The Facility is composed of four partners. The main contractor is based at Sheffield, with sub-contracting partners at Cambridge (GaN), Glasgow (nanoscale device fabrication) and Nottingham (ferromagnetic semiconductors). (See links to left for individual roles).
