Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) Facility

Dr. Zbig Wasilewski at the QNC MBE facility

The state-of-the-art Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) facility was formally inaugurated on June 4th, 2014. The lab 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 MBE facility is led by Professor 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.
