The West Campus Cleanroom is located within Building 750 (Shipping & Receiving Center) with direct dedicated access along the southern exterior face of the building.
The expansion effectively doubles the existing cleanroom facilities at West Campus, adding by a further 1200 ft2 of dry lab and wet lab. The expanded space has enabled the installation of a new Electron Beam Evaporator and Reactive Ion Etcher, both of which bring state-of-the-art nanofabrication capabilities to West Campus.
Alongside existing materials characterization technologies, users from the Energy Sciences Institute, Systems Biology Institute, Nanobiology Institute and from across Yale can now complete device manufacturing at West Campus. The facility also provides an additional venue for researchers from Applied Physics, Electrical Engineering and Material Science, further supporting collaborations and the rapid development of nanoscale science, engineering and technology at Yale.
