Shared Facilities

ORaCEL encompasses several laboratories for research activities in organic electronics spanning Physics, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Materials Science and Engineering, with a wide variety of processing and characterization equipment.

Device and Film Preparation

  • Glove Boxes and integrated dual materials deposition system with:
    • state-of-art top-line dual-deposition systems and have unique customized features particularly for electronics/spintronics research. There are two different boxes each with consisting of evaporation chambers with high vacuum chambers (up to 10^-9 Torr). The chambers include capabilities for thermal deposition of oxide/metals and organic co-evaporation.
    • spin-coaters, heating plates, etc.
  • Blade and slot die coating equipment
  • Organic Molecular Beam Deposition
  • CVD Graphene Growth
