The Semiconductor Epitaxy and Analysis Laboratory (SEAL) is OSU’s primary facility for molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and is located within the 4,000 square foot Dreese Lab Cleanroom (DLC). SEAL houses five state of the art MBE chambers each dedicated to different, complementary material systems, to ensure high quality material epitaxy for both basic studies and true device development. SEAL can provide epitaxial growth of crystalline layers, heterostructures, nanostructures and device structures in a variety of material domains.
SEAL is a staffed user based cost center within the college of engineering (COE) and department of electrical and computer engineering (ECE). SEAL is also a member of the IMR network of laboratories at OSU which coordinates research activities and infrastructure related to the science and engineering of materials throughout OSU.
