    Equipments Details


    The Edwards E306A Thermal Evaporator will evaporate a metal film over a semiconductor or metal substrate. The metal source to be evaporated is placed in a filament or crucible, in which a large current is passed. The metal melts, and evaporates on the target substrate above the source, producing a film.

    There are three separate laboratory spaces at USW with dedicated setup for imaging spectroscopy, optical coating, interferometry and high power lasers.

    The optoelectronics and RF facilities are composed of two optoelectronics laboratories and two RF equipped with £1million worth of experimental equipment and modelling facilities.
