What is a NanoFab?

NanoFab is the shortened name of a nanometer-scale fabrication facility. It is the cleanroom where devices with nanoscale features, like those found in computer chips, are built. Remember, 1 nanometer is one-billionth of a meter. So, the components being fabricated are extremely small. The video below will give a short tour of the ASU NanoFab, and talk about the device fabrication process using various pieces of advanced equipment and instruments. After watching the video, you can look around further at you own pace using the links on the side.
