(2) cluster tool, X-ray CT, MPMS,


In 2016 the EPSRC awarded £10 million to the University of Cambridge for state-of-the-art research equipment for exploring the theme of Materials for Energy-Efficient ICT. The Cambridge Royce equipment suites are now almost fully installed at the Maxwell Centre, and also within nearby laboratory suites in West Cambridge.


The Cambridge Royce operates as a national facility and all equipment is available for use by all UK research institutions and UK industry. The majority of equipment suites are now available for booking.


The Cambridge Royce equipment comprises advanced wafer-scale research facilities including a range of chemical synthesis suites, UHV and ambient thin film deposition, nanofabrication tools, in situ characterisation, packaging and electrical testing facilities.


Registration for the opening event is free at the Eventbrite link below.
