Engineering the Microworld

The Integrated Nanosystems Research Facility at The University of California, Irvine (INRF UCI) in the Henry Samueli School of Engineering is dedicated to developing and promoting micro and nano technology through research, education and outreach. The INRF advances multidisciplinary research through fostering communication between traditionally distant fields such as bioscience and engineering and by enlisting researchers from diverse backgrounds. The facility is a 9,600 square foot class 100/1,000/10,000 clean room equipped with all the major devices for micro and nano fabrication. Capabilities include such diverse disciplines such as MEMS, biology, chemistry, optics and physics equipped with all the major devices for micro and nano fabrication.

Our facilities are available to our distinguished faculty and students along with other academic institutions and industry. We welcome you to visit us, take a tour and join us in performing high quality research at our world class facility to engineer the microworld.
