A Small Gift to Dr. Loh Makes a Big Hit

UMD president Dr. Wallace Loh (center) receives a set of personally engraved gold-coated silicon wafers, key components of semiconductor and micro-machine fabrication. The wafers, created by Maryland NanoCenter staff, shows logos of the other Big Ten Schools, of which University of Maryland is the newest school, around the central disk.

NanoCenter FabLab

Our class 1000 clean room is open to all faculty, students, researchers, government labs and companies.

The FabLab staff have combined over 100 years of fabrication experience using standard techniques for deposition, lithography and metrology.
