Facilities

Nanohmics operates a 14,000 square-foot R&D, system and instrumentation engineering and prototype/low-volume manufacturing and shipping facility in Austin, Texas.

Our facility is close to The University of Texas at Austin, research centers and other semiconductor and high-tech manufacturing companies in the area’s thriving technology sector. Nanohmics has the laboratory capabilities required for the successful completion of the proposed work and is in compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local regulations.

Electro-optics

Electro-optics

The electro-optics and sensors laboratory is equipped with four full-size optical tables, including a Newport Ultra Clean Research Series with a stabilizer pneumatic vibration isolation system. Nanohmics also has a custom, instrument capable of measuring the absolute, polarization-dependent, bidirectional scattering distribution functions of surfaces for transparent and opaque substrates (BRDF and BTDF) at several wavelengths in the visible and infrared range that the company uses to performs contract optical scatterometry and surface characterization services. Think lasers, and lots of them. Our full range of equipment for building and testing electro-optics and electro-mechanical systems includes:

Advanced Materials + Devices

Advanced Materials + Devices

Our materials science laboratory has a variety of vacuum chamber systems, pumping equipment, and other peripherals that its staff assembles into various test and growth chambers as needed. Two softwall TerraUniversal cleanrooms house a custom three-head magnetron sputtering system with vacuum-interlocked, roll-to-roll web coater and a custom reticulating arm sputter deposition system designed and built by Nanohmics. The materials science laboratory also has a microwave CVD diamond reactor, a supersonic beam apparatus for preparing low defect density films and integrated nanomaterial precursors, and a CVC 601 sputter deposition tool. A full list of capabilities include:

Electronics Design

Electronics Design

Nanohmics’ electronics laboratory has all the necessary equipment to design, construct, and test custom electronics solutions. The laboratory is equipped with ESD workstations and electronic support equipment for rapid fabrication of prototype hardware and instruments.

Nanomaterials

Nanomaterials

This laboratory has full wet-chemistry and biochemistry workbenches for developing molecular, polymer, and nanomaterials into functional device elements. It contains microfluidic handling and dispensing equipment for sample preparation and delivery and coupling reactive solutions with sensor and test devices, including syringe pumps, electronic valving and temperature-control devices.

Bimolecular and Chemistry

Bimolecular and Chemistry

Basic chemical and biomolecular synthesis, solution-phase reactions, coupling reactions, and coatings/dye are accommodated in our chem/biochem lab.

Instrumentation

Instrumentation

Nanohmics has dedicated engineering and development capabilities for designing, constructing, and assembling prototype instrumentation for research programs and applied development for low-volume commercial product manufacturing. Nanohmics has in-house machining and micromachining capabilities including basic photolithographic and embossing, contact printing, and electronic board fabrication. The company also regularly works with local rapid prototype machining (SLA, SLS) and machining/molding companies to generate custom parts/tools using CNC milling, lathing, wire EDM, surface grinding and inspection equipment to support the construction of prototypes and for low volume manufacturing projects. The prototype development laboratories operate under the principles prescribed by CE and UL certifications and are ISO 9002 compliant to ease the transfer to the manufacturing environment.
