At Kelvin Nanotechnology Ltd (KNT) we provide nanofabrication solutions to industry and academia delivered through the state of the art James Watt Nanofabrication Centre in Glasgow.

We specialise in high resolution, large area, multilevel electron beam lithography for applications such as transistor gate writing, imprint masks, optical elements, photonic crystals, nanotextured surfaces and many more.

Kelvin Nanotechnology has over thirty years experience in electron beam lithography and nanofabrication. Electron beam lithography provides a route to rapid and flexible nano-patterning for a vast range of applications. Single or multilevel patterns can be written onto almost any type of substrate then transferred by etching or depositing any number of metals, insulators, biocompatible materials, optical or electronic layers.

Our core technology is based around a cutting edge industrial machine; a Vistec VB6. Features below 10 nm can be written easily and quickly on up to 200 mm wafers and down to 5 mm pieces. Full industrial service contracts ensure 96% up time and with over 50,000 samples written in the last ten years, this high utility translates into low prices.

Kelvin Nanotechnology provides a wide range of R&D and prototyping services for the semiconductor, optoelectronic, bioelectronic and nanoelectronic market places.

Our Core Competencies are:

  • Electron Beam Lithography
  • Nanofabrication services
  • Technology prototyping and proof of concept
  • Product development
  • Fuctionalised scanning probe fabrication

As the proliferation of nanotechnology into new application spaces gathers pace, we are constantly expanding and developing our industrially facing processes and technology. We are keen to learn about your applications and technical challenges and how we might use our expertise and experience to satisfy your micro and nanofabrication needs.
