Who We Are

Since its inception over a decade ago, the Institute for Micromanufacturing (IfM) has been in the forefront of integrated multidisciplinary research and education. Starting from its original micromanufacturing emphasis, the Institute’s research and educational efforts have grown and expanded significantly to its current five thrust areas of emphasis, identified as Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Biomedical Nanotechnology, Environmental Technology, and Information Technology.  The activities carried out through these thrust areas, coupled with the Institute’s integrated nanomanufacturing and micromanufacturing resources, have led to the realization of a broad range of research, educational and commercialization efforts.


The Institute, through its leading-edge resources and modern facilities, has been providing a broad range of technical training, processing, and measurement services to external users, including industrial, governmental, and commercial customers.  The Institute consists of an interdisciplinary team of faculty and staff, and 65,000 sq. ft. of user facilities, headquartered in a modern 41,000 sq. ft. building, designed specifically for research and development of micro/nano scale technologies and systems. The R & D complex includes laboratory facilities with a full suite of micro- and nanomanufacturing capabilities, and a comprehensive set of measurement and characterization tools, as well as modeling and simulation software.
