SERC nano Fabrication, Processing and Characterisation (SnFPC)

The SnFPC facility aims to make A*STAR SERC's extensive research facilities in Nanofabrication and Characterisation techniques accessible to all researchers. The facilities at IMRE forms the hub of an A*STAR-wide network providing easy access to a range of research equipment and expertise on a variety of techniques. SnFPC infludes a 700 sqm purpose-built clean room for research work on a variety of materials.

SnFPC offers an extensive range of nanofabrication and characterisation services and training on the use of equipment. SnFPC staff are highly trained in the use of the equipment and associated processes. Under some approved schemes, qualified members from the community are encouraged to use the tools on their own.

SnFPC can perform a variety of service work ranging from simple one-stage processing jobs to full device fabrication based on our standard processes or characterisation.

Summary

  • SnFPC encompasses a network of world class facilities and expertise across all SERC Research Institutes.
  • SnFPC offers an extensive range of Nanofabrication and Characterisation services and training on the use of equipment.

Working Models

  • Service - SnFPC can perform a variety of service work for you. This ranges from a simple one-stage processing job to full device fabrication from our standard processes, or a characterisation service.
  • Equipment usage - If you plan to use a piece of SnFPC equipment regularly, SnFPC can either train you or suggest a relevant training course for you. Subsequently, you will attend the compulsory IMRE Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) and Cleanroom Orientation briefing sessions and become an authorised user for that particular equipment. Thereafter, you will be able to book the equipment on-line and come into IMRE any time during office hours to use it.
