The state-of-the-art QNC MBE facility was formally inaugurated on June 4th, 2014. The facility houses a Veeco GEN10 MBE system that enables the production of nanomaterials such as sophisticated III/V semiconductors for devices of the future. The facility will support research programs in photonics to quantum computing.
The Grand Opening also featured a special lecture by Professor Tom Foxon, Emeritus Research Professor at the University of Nottingham, UK, a leading authority on the use of MBE.
The QNC-MBE facility is led by Dr Zbig Wasilewski, WIN Endowed Chair and Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, who is an acknowledged expert on MBE methods for growing complex, ultrapure, semiconductor materials.
