Welcome to the IML! Please click on a menu item to view other options

The Idaho Microfabrication Laboratory (IML) at Boise State University is a shared user facility dedicated to the education and advancement of fabrication technologies used in the areas of nano\micro-fabrication and additive manufacturing.  Originally commisioned in 1998, the IML was established to provide hands-on training for students pursuing careers in semiconductor technologies.

The IML is accessible by the R&D community in both academia and by industry partners looking for a fabrication hub to fulfill their needs for crafting intricate microchips, sensors and MEMS devices.  From RCA silicon wafer cleaning to packaging, the IML is equipped with typical equipment used in the fabrication of microelectronics including thin film deposition, dry and wet etch processing and photolithography.  The additive manufacturing equipment suite enables research and development in the area of printed and flexible electronics and is also available to industry partners who wish to explore technologies in these rapidly growing areas.

Partnerships between the IML and the Boise State Surface Science Lab and the Boise State Center for Materials Characterization can also assist the user with their characterization needs.
