The National Epitaxy Facility is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) as part of a network of National Research Centres.
The University of Cambridge is a partner institution which offers specialist world-class capabilities in wide band gap nitrides. Additional growth capability in the surrounding environment includes molecular beam epitaxy of nitrides, which is available in the Cavendish Laboratory, with a focus on growth of high density self-assembled nitride nanowires. Additional characterisation capability is available which supports the development of new GaN technologies.
Facilities offered by our partner Institution, University College London, include Group IV materials and world-class MBE capabilities. MBE is the ideal technology for the development of new materials and innovative structures. The Facility at UCL is able to supply a wide variety of Group-IV materials, alloy combinations and types of structures using a wide range of sources.
Home to the UK’s best nanoelectronics and photonics fabrication facilities, our Hub is a unique resource of expertise, technology and wide ranging capability in device fabrication, equipment for micro and nanofabrication and electronic and optical characterisation.
The Hub will focus on understanding, adapting and integrating photonics in four critical technology platforms: high performance silica optical fibres; light generation and delivery; Silicon photonics; and large-scale manufacture of metamaterials and 2D materials. By exploiting new functional materials and processes, we will improve the manufacturability and integration of photonics, leading to low-cost manufacturing and accelerating the wider adoption of photonics technology.
