UK research center moves into new facility

A new £10 million technology center at the University of Sheffield will house cutting-edge III-V research activities.

The University of Sheffield in the UK has invested £10 million in a new Nanoscience and Technology Centre that will provide state-of-the-art research facilities for III-V technology and "“ it is hoped "“ improve industrial links in the region.

Moving into the new building is the National Centre for III-V Technologies, the UK's key academic facility for compound semiconductor research.

Set up by the UK government's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Sheffield facility has been working on III-V materials for over 25 years.

Peter Houston, co-director of the III-V center, said, "Relocating will give us the expansion capacity not only to maintain and expand our existing research, but to accelerate new areas such as biophotonics and to form stronger links with industry."

Apart from the semiconductor equipment, a cleanroom, and product test laboratories, the new center includes a suite of business incubator offices to help foster those links.
