The Nanoscale Fabrication Center (NFC) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison provides a research facility for nanofabrication technologies, products and innovations. In order to give students a state-of-the-art education and to maintain leading-edge research programs, we continue to improve this advanced laboratory.
NFC maintains a suite of semiconductor and microfabrication processing equipment in a cleanroom laboratory. Access to the lab and to all equipment is available to qualified users from the University of Wisconsin, other education institutions, or industry. NFC is a cost recovery facility.
