About the Münster Nanofabrication Facility (MNF)
The Münster Nanofabrication Facility (MNF) is a Core Science Facility administrated by the University of Münster (WWU) and operates two cleanrooms in CeNTech and the Center for Soft Nanoscience (SoN).
A state-of-the-art machine park for advanced nanofabrication, the MNF is an internal service provider offering cleanroom laboratory space to an interdisciplinary research community of graduate students, postdocs and research associates in chemistry, physics and biology.
The initial cleanroom in CeNTech was completed in 2003 and serves a diverse research community in nanophysics, nanobiology, nanochemistry and materials science. Following the University's expanding presence in nanoscience, the original facility required significant upgrades to meet the needs of researchers and remain competitive with peer institutions. Through the approval of the SoN research program, the WWU received a multimillion euro investment including capital equipment upgrade, as well as several large instrument grants.
In 2017 the MNF expanded into brand new cleanroom facilities in the SoN building.
On the 5th of March at 2pm in the big seminar room in the SoN, the MNF will be hosting a talk by the Raith GmbH product manager, Torsten Richter.
The presentation will cover essential components of EBL instrumentation and review FIBL applications in plasmonics and nanophotonics, including
- plasmonic arrays and zero mode waveguides for sensing biological molecules
- solar absorber arrays
- color center creation by maskless ion implantation
- large area photonic structures in diamond
- and metallic metasurfaces.
