Description of the technology

Center Manager: Zvi Kopolovich

MNCF is a central facility for micro and nano fabrication and characterization, located at the campus of Tel-Aviv University.

The center provides R&D and prototyping services to approximately 50 research groups on campus, as well as over 30 industrial companies.

Advanced and sophisticated equipment:

  • Assisting users in: MEMS, NEMS, Bio-chips, Electro-optics, and more
  • NIL (nano imprint lithography) – the only machine in Israel
  • FIB – highly advanced technology
  • Laser micromachining – coming soon, the first in Israel and one of the few systems in the world
  • Lithography mask design and fabrication
  • Various thin film deposition methods, e-beam and optical lithography, wet and dry etching, backend processing,and various characterization methods available
  • Users can work independently, with assistance, or through our staff.
  • Brainstorming with the customer and a team of experts can help you develop your project from scratch

All this is the tip of the technological iceberg. We will be happy to provide more information.


  • To provide Tel Aviv University users with access to state of the art micro- and nanofabrication and characterization equipment.
  • To consult and help users develop suitable process protocols.
  • To train users to operate equipment and wet chemical stations.
  • To provide services to external academic users as well as industry.
  • An experienced and knowledgeable team of engineers can assist in R&D project with full concept: from mask design to chip dicing and bonding
