Nanotechnology Research Center at Bilkent University is dedicated to research on theoretical and experimental nanoscience and nanotechnology with strong emphasis on education and training.
The Center is an inter-disciplinary research environment which houses the nanotechnology related research efforts in science and engineering faculties, and serves to all departments in both faculties.
Main research areas: Metamaterials, Photonic Crystals, MOCVD growth, fabrication and characterization of nanoelectronic and nanophotonic GaN/AlGaN devices, high performance near-infrared semiconductor photodetectors and lasers.
The center has a total of 250 square meter of class-100 level clean room for sub-micron lithography along with general-purpose electrical and optical characterization measurements. A new AIXTRON RF200/4 RF-S GaN/AlGaN MOCVD epitaxial growth system has been recently installed and can be used for the growth of all GaN and related materials. The center has also supporting nanofabrication and characterization laboratories."
