Devices Fabrication and Characterization Laboratory

Devices Fabrication and Characterization Laboratory

Fabrication of organic, inorganic and hybrid devices is completed in this multi-functional facility offering solution-processing methods (inkjet printing, small scale gravure and offset printing, meniscus and blade coating,  spray coating, etc.) in controlled or inert environments.  In addition to standard device characterization equipment, the lab offers characterization of PV devices in inert atmospheres conducted on state-of-the-art equipment, including photo-CELIV and PCT Photoelectric defect analysis.

 This facility hosts research equipment under inert environment including:

  • Inkjet printers

  • Small scale gravure and offset printing

  • Screen printers

  • Meniscus and blade coating

  • Spray coating

  • Vacuum deposition facility including thermal, sputtering, e-beam, and ion-beam sputtering

  • Research scale device testing facility

  • Multiprobe facility

  • Research scale encapsulation capability

  • Plasma and ozone treatment capability

  • Spin coaters

  • Kelvin probe

  • Nanoembossing and nanoimprint capability, and supporting tools

  • OLEDs and solar cell testing

  • TFT testing

  • Impedance measurement, etc...

Moreover, stand alone inkjet printers, stand alone spin coater for photo resist and aqueous based materials, direct write system, and other supporting tools are available. A dedicated chemistry facility having inert environment synthetic capability is also available.
