Nanomaterials & Thin Films

Shared facilities operated by the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience (NCMN). The Facility provides state-of-the-art instruments for fabricating material samples and devices.  The primary focus of the facility is on nanostructuring by using thin film deposition and multi-layering.  The facility has 2 thin film deposition systems which can deposit sub nanometer thick films in which 2 or more materials can be layered together in different order to form a multilayer structure.  The properties of such samples or devices will depend on the actual intrinsic property of the nanostructuring such as how the materials interact through the interfaces.  The facility also provides systems to alloy materials together to study the bulk material properties.
