UW Nanotechnology Modeling Laboratory

The Nanotechnology Modeling Lab at the University of Washington is part of the Electrical Engineering Department in the College of Engineering. The efforts within the Lab are focused on obtaining basic understanding of nanofabrication processes and device operation, applying that knowledge to produce better models, simulators and devices. For more information on recent activities see our project descriptions and publications, as well as the activities of the students working in the lab.

Research within the Lab includes model development for process simulation, application of a wide range of simulation and modeling tools for device design and optimization, and experimental studies of device fabrication. The Lab is associated with the Center for Nanotechnology, the Clean Low-cost Energy through Advanced Nanomaterials (CLEAN) Initiative, and the Institute of Advanced Materials and Technology (i-AMT) at UW. Experimental work is conducted in the EE Microfabrication Laboratory and the Washington Technology Center (WTC) Microfabrication Lab, both on the UW campus and the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) at Pacific Northwest National Labs (PNNL).
