The Marcus Nanotechnology Building houses an innovative combination of traditional inorganic cleanroom space and a cleanroom designed for interdisciplinary life sciences and nanotechnology research. The building includes ten thousand square feet of semiconductor/MEMS cleanroom space and a fully equipped mask fabrication facility, as well as five thousand square feet of biological cleanroom space rated up to Biosafety Level 2.
Additional shared user space is provided for biotechnology, characterization, metrology, and wet processing. Bio Devices and Systems research as well as Physical Devices and Systems research are conducted on the 3rd and 4th floors.
This laboratory tract stimulates new interdisciplinary research enabled by the nanotechnology fabrication resources in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building cleanroom. This laboratory suite brings together engineering and science faculty research teams to develop nano-enabled next-generation technology, devices, and systems, providing benefits for healthcare, environment energy, and national security.
The Marcus Nanotechnology Building also provides a reconfigurable, fully equipped audio-visual technology enabled conference facility capable of seating up to 165 people in support of education and the dissemination of research results.
The Pettit Microelectronics Research Building was designed to encourage an active interdisciplinary environment by combining open common areas for students with faculty offices, individual investigator laboratories, and an eighty-five hundred square-foot cleanroom (75% class 1000, 25% class 10) for advanced device, microstructure, and circuit fabrication, including advanced electron-beam lithography. Additionally, various workstation-based computer-aided design facilities, fully-equipped simulation and modeling facilities, and several laboratories for metrology and device characterization are available to all users.
To augment research capabilities, the Pettit Building provides a 1500 sq/ft, IC and MEMS Fabrication Educational and Training Facility. Here both new cleanroom users and students attending various fabrication courses as part of Georgia Tech's educational programs can gain valuable hands-on training experience to initiate and/or augment research experience.
The $25 million, 200,000-square-foot Technology Square Research Building (TSRB) is a bricks-and-mortar testament to building a technology future for the state of Georgia. TSRB is the Southeast’s premier facility for next-generation communications research. TRSB provides research space for 500 world-class faculty and student researchers from Georgia Tech’s School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and College of Computing.
TRSB houses five leading-edge research centers. They are the; Digital Media Center, Georgia Electronic Design Center (GEDC), Georgia Tech Research Network Operations Center (GT-RNOC), Graphics Visualization and Usability (GVU) Center, Interactive Media Technology Center (IMTC), and the School of Interactive Computing.
The building’s conference facilities include a 100-seat auditorium, three banquet rooms, training rooms and sixteen conference rooms. The TSRB video teleconferencing capabilities are used to facilitate and showcase the myriad of active research and educational opportunities taking place in Technology Square.
Fuller E. Callaway Building a 120,000-square-foot building located in the northwest section of campus contains state-of-the-art labs that support research, education and technological initiatives. It serves as an incubator for educational advancement and, interdisciplinary manufacturing research. One of the nation’s foremost multidisciplinary educational research facilities, the Callaway building focuses on developing next-generation manufacturing technologies. As such, it houses a number of research centers including the 3D Systems Packaging Research Center.
Located near the center of the Georgia Tech Campus the Bunger-Henry Building serves as a research facility for various faculty investigators. Facilities most relevant to IEN include Professor Russell Dupuis’ Metalorganic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) cleanroom facilities for compound semiconductor research, and Professor Ajeet Rohatgi’s cleanroom facilities for low-cost, high-efficiency solar cell research.
The Baker Building houses additional IC fabrication and electronics packaging capabilities that complement those of the Marcus, Pettit and Callaway Buildings and is managed by the Georgia Tech Research Institute, a self-sustaining applied research arm of Georgia Tech.
