Welcome to George J. Kostas Center
The George J. Kostas Nanoscale Technology and Manufacturing Research Center, established in 2005 through a generous gift from Mr. George J. Kostas (’43), is the primary user facility for micro and nanofabrication at Northeastern University. The 7,000 sq. ft. user facility includes cleanroom space down to Class 10 and houses instruments for micro- and nanofabrication processes and characterization studies, including metrology. Non-cleanroom lab space includes chemical hoods; device-testing areas with a full range of electrical test instruments and design areas.
The facility is open to faculty, students, researchers, coop students, and external users with easy scheduling and access. The facility provides support and materials based on user fees and have capabilities for processing 3, 4, and 6-inch wafers as well as smaller parts at lower cost. Applications range from nanoelectronics, nanodevices, sensors, energy storage, and NEMs to exploration studies in fundamental science and engineering. The facility is supported by highly trained and talented staff with a combined 75 years of fabrication and characterization experience who will assist the users with their process development.
We welcome new researchers from all disciplines who wish to explore the use of micro and nano fabrication and characterization tools in expanding their research portfolio.
