Liquid nitrogen system updates for The Dreese Cleanroom and SEAL

ORISadmin Equipment, Facilities

Construction in front of Dreese Lab between the Northwest parking garage may be inconvenient for pedestrians for a few days. However, with the recent addition of the Veeco 930 Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) to SEAL, and an eye on future growth of SEAL and the Dreese Lab Cleanroom, the project became essential.  The current system features underground delivery of the liquid nitrogen, which …

New MBE System Installed
