Event Name:  Visit to the UPC Clean Room
Event Description:  The Clean Room ubicated at UPC is a solid state laboratory where the sensing chips of the wind sensors for such important missions as Curiosity + InSight + Mars 2020 have been fabricated. The Micro and Nanotechnology Research Group (MNT) at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya/Institut d'Estudis Espacials de Catalunya have designed and fabricated these chips, some of which will measure, among other magnitudes, the angle and velocity of the Martian wind, relative humidity, pressure and the properties of the red planet's suspended dust. These data will be used to feed the computational models of physicists studying the atmospheric dynamics of the planets. This research facility is classified as a Class 100 Clean Room, and it comprises the following equipment: - PECVD (Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition), - ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition), - Evaporator with electron beam - Sputtering (deposition of metals and other materials) - Furnaces (oxidation and diffusion) - Chemical banks (cleaning and chemical etching) + external resources for on-wafer and layer characterization. Solar simulator + laser for fabrication processing. The visit is scheduled on Monday, 7 October 2019 at 17:00h (CEST) and registration is required on the following link:
