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 founded in 1998, the IML was established to provide hands-on training for students pursuing careers in semiconductor technologies.
The IML is a multi-user facility accessible by the R&D community in both academia and by industry partners looking for a one-stop shop to fulfill their needs for rapid prototyping and/or proof-of-concept development. From wafer cleans to electronics 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 newly formed additive manufacturing equipment suite enables research in the areas of printed and flexible electronics and is also available to industry partners who wish to explore technologies in these rapidly growing areas.
