About Us

The National Epitaxy Facility plays a central role in enabling UK University research through provision of high quality Semiconductor Epitaxy for custom designed structures and devices. The facility has expanded from the provision of III-V materials and devices to include group IV epitaxy and hybrid III-V/Group IV epitaxy. As well as supporting UK university research we play an equally significant role in enabling developments in UK industry with many companies utilising our expertise, knowledge and world class facilities to further their businesses. Contact us to find out how we can help you with our facilities, expertise and consultancy services.

We are currently consulting with the community on their future epitaxy needs. The National Epitaxy Facility has a request for your input on a matter of strategic importance for the Facility and we would be grateful for your time to complete a short questionnaire below.

The National Epitaxy Facility is one of EPSRCs National Research Facilities and is renewed on a 5-year basis. The renewal process starts with a call for a Community Statement of Need for such a Facility, followed by a full call for proposals.

We are expecting the Statement of Need call from EPSRC shortly. In order to plan the details of a community consultation exercise that will take place over the autumn months, we would be grateful if you could complete a short questionnaire below regarding your interests and research needs. We estimate it will take around 5 minutes to complete.
