THE HEBREW UNIVERSITY CENTER FOR NANOSCIENCE AND NANOTECHNOLOGY

Unit for Nanofabrication - Information for Users


General Information:
The Unit for Nanofabrication (UNF), headed by Dr. Shimon Eliav, which construction was finalized in summer 2007, is in the course of extensive equipment acquisition. The unit already provides some of the state-of-the-art tools for preparing nanoscale structures and devices, which enable the connection of nanoscopic objects to the macroscopic world. A special focus is given to processing of inorganic and organic nanomaterials including biomolecules. This unit combines two complementary approaches utilized for nanofabrication:
the “Bottom-Up” approach that is inherent to nano-chemistry and the “Top-Down” approach commonly applied in modern microelectronics efforts to shrink down device dimensions.
The infrastructure of the UNF includes 300 m2 of clean rooms complete with the following instruments and facilities:
  • Lithography tools (optical and E-beam)
  • Metal deposition instruments (by sputtering and evaporation)
  • Etching facilities (wet and reactive ion etching, ion beam etching)
  • Electroplating instrument
  • Chemical vapor deposition facilities (plasma enhanced and low pressure CVDs)
  • Glove box (equipped with spin coater, vacuum oven, evaporator, etc.)
  • Packaging tools (dicing and wire bonding)
  • Characterization tools (profiler, microscopes, thickness measuring instrument, probe station, etc.)
