September opening for Southampton Nanofabrication Centre

Southampton, UK | Posted on July 14th, 2009

Around 200 guests are expected to attend the event in the new Mountbatten Building, to inaugurate the world-leading research in nanotechnology which will form the core activity of the Southampton Nanofabrication Centre. Guest speakers include Dr Larry Scipioni, Director of Applications Research, Carl Zeiss SMT Inc.; Dr David Williams, Chief Research Scientist and Lab Manager, Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory; and Dr Chris Winter, Partner, New Venture Partners UK. Professor Peter Ashburn of ECS, Head of the Nano group which will manage the Southampton Nanofabrication Centre, will provide an introduction to the Centre's facilities and capabilities, and guests will be able to tour the clean rooms in the afternoon.

‘This is a world-leading research facility, which gives us the best possible opportunity to take forward our world-class research,' said Professor Harvey Rutt, Head of the School of Electronics and Computer Science. ‘We have an outstanding building in the Mountbatten Building and our clean rooms are now fitted out with around £50M of equipment which gives us unique capabilities for the future.

‘We look forward to welcoming our guests, including research collaborators from universities and industry around the world, to see what we can offer them as research partners in the future.'

The day will begin with an opening address by Professor Ian Diamond, former Deputy Vice-Chancellor in the University of Southampton, who is now Chief Executive of the Economic and Social Research Council, and Chair of Research Councils UK.
