The NFF provides state-of-the-art instruments for designing, fabricating, characterizing and testing of complex nano and microscale structures and devices. The NFF is housed within a 2500 square feet ISO-5 cleanroom inside the experimental hall at CAMD. The facility is open to all LSU and external (industry) researchers. Cleanroom staff support is available for training, process consultation and collaboration on new process development. Visit the How to become a user page for more details.
