Research facilities

Research facilities in the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering

Our academics and postgraduate researchers have access to the following specialist facilities and laboratories, including state-of-the-art equipment in:

We also make use of University facilities, including:

  • Nanotechnology cleanroom
    • The £6m class 100 cleanroom offers the capability for fabricating wafer-scale, electronic and opto-electronic devices, with a sub-micron feature resolution.
  • Electron Beam Lithography system
    • Our JEOL JBX-6300FS is a state-of-the-art vector scan electron beam lithography system capable of patterning lines less than 10nm wide.
  • EPSRC National Facility for Innovative Robotic Systems
    • Our robotics facility includes the latest 3D printing technology, a high-precision cutting system, and micromanipulators for assembling tiny robots.
  • Royce facilities
    • The Sir Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials is funding two new state-of-the-art facilities, which provide unique capability for the UK: a multifunctional materials growth facility, and a versatile X-ray spectroscopy facility for materials characterisation in controlled environments.

Our undergraduate and Masters students may benefit from these facilities during their project work.
