Back-end

Back-End laboratory of CBN allow to carry on all the technologies useful to pursue the second part of MEMS and devices micro- fabrication: packaging of the single chip inside the chip carrier and related wiring for chip-to-package connections. Characterization testing for packaging, MEMS vibrations and electronics are installed in the laboratory.

The person in charge for the lab is Dr. Antonio Qualtieri


Nano-Observer AFM Microscope

The Nano-Observer AFM microscope is a flexible and powerful AFM. Designed with the ultimate technologies, it combines performance and ease of use. The USB controller offers a real integrated lock-in for better measurement capability (phase detection, Piezo-Response Mode…). A low-noise laser and a pre-alignment system provide simplicity and high resolution on a compact AFM head.


Dual Beam FIB/SEM HeliosNanoLab600i

This instrument is fully equipped for a range of sample preparation, microanalysis and nanofabrication applications including automated slice-and-view FIB tomography, electron and ion beam lithography, nanomanipulation, in situ probing, EDS, EBSD and a range of imaging modalities. In addition, the system is equipped with 4 gas injection systems for deposition (Pt, Au, SiOx) and etching (XeF2). This dual-beam FIB/SEM allows simultaneous FIB milling and SEM imaging.
