Cleanroom facilities


The Center for Solid State Electronics Research (CSSER) was established in 1981 during the first phase of the Engineering Excellence Program at Arizona State University.  The vision was to achieve nothing less than national leadership in the crucial area of solid state electronics.  High technology now directly or indirectly supports one out of every five jobs in Arizona.  The Center has exhibited strong and steady growth since those days and currently provides resources and infrastructure for research and education in solid state electronics in the form of 30 laboratories covering more than 30,000 sq.ft.; including a Class-100 Cleanroom administered and maintained by a complement of 10 staff and 2 student workers. 

Today, CSSER has 38 faculty members, 15 post-doctoral researchers and over 80 students drawn from various disciplines including biochemistry, bioengineering, chemistry, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, materials science, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, and physics.  The microelectronics research is focused in five main cross-disciplinary efforts; Nanostructures; Molecular Beam Epitaxy and Optoelectronics; Materials and Process Fundamentals; Low Power Electronics; and Bio and Molecular Electronics.  Other areas include: MEMS and Nano-fluidics; Wide Band Gap Semiconductors; High-K Dielectrics and Nano-magnetics.
