David Bullett Nanofabrication Facility
The nanofabrication facility is an ISO class 6 suite of cleanrooms that house specialist materials patterning, deposition and processing equipment. The equipment can be used separately or sequentially to create structures, for example, for studying the electronic, magnetic and optical properties of materials, as well as creating devices such as biosensors and light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
Material and Chemical Characterisation Facility (MC²)
We combine cutting-edge analytical equipment with extensive in-house expertise to provide a comprehensive material and chemical characterisation service.
Fibre Fabrication Facility
On the University of Bath campus, we have a research-grade facility for making optical fibre. We use the facility to process raw materials – usually silica glass tubes and doped silica rods – into flexible optical fibre that guides light along its length. The facility is housed in a cleanroom suite and consists of two drawing towers along with ancillary space for storing and processing glass.
