The James Watt Nanofabrication Centre @ Glasgow houses over £20M of nanofabrication tools in a 750 m2 clean room run as a pseudo-industrial operation by 18 technicians and 5 PhD level research technologists.
Glasgow has over 30 years experience of delivering micro- and nano-fabrication (and in particular electron-beam lithography) to develop solutions in processing, nanotechnology, nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, mm-wave & terahertz, bioengineering, biotechnology, lab-on-a-chip, cleantech & energy, thermoelectrics, photovoltaics, security & defence and a host of other applications.
The Centre undertakes fundamental, applied and commercial research, development and small production delivered using a vast array of developed process modules and background IP which can provide integrated processes to deliver components, devices, circuits, systems and solutions.
The Centre presently has over £53M of active research grants undertaking micro- and nano-fabrication in Si-technology, MEMS, III-Vs (GaAs, InP, InGaAs, InGaAsP, GaN, etc.), piezoelectric and magnetic materials.
Kelvin Nanotechnology Ltd. provides commercial access to the centre, facilities and expertise for industry, governments, institutes and also universities.

Douglas Paul has an MA degree in Physics and Theoretical Physics and a PhD from the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics, a chartered physicist, a Senior Member of the IEEE, was a Fellow of St. Edmund's College in Cambridge, an EPSRC Advanced Fellowship and managed all the Si/SiGe research in the Cavendish Laboratory before taking up a Professorial position at the University of Glasgow in 2007. He has or presently sits on a number of government department advisory committees including the Home Office, DTI Foresight , Government Office of Science , the Defence Scientific Advisory Council and was the U.K. representative to the NATO CBP Science Panel between 2004 and 2008. He was one of the editors for the 1st Technology Roadmap on European Nanoelectronics, a significant part of which is now in the ITRS Roadmap Future Emerging Technology section and gave evidence at the House of Lords to the Lords Select Committee panel on 'Chips for Everything'. He sits on the scientific, programme and / or organising committees for a number of international conference series including the International IEEE LEOS Conference on Group IV Photonics, the International SiGe Technology and Device Meeting, the Electrochemical Society SiGe Conferences and the International Conference on Silicon Epitaxy and Heterostructures. Prof Paul is on the Editorial Board of the IoP Semiconductor Science and Technology journal. His research interests include Si/SiGe heterostructures, CMOS, quantum cascade lasers, quantum devices, silicon photonics, terahertz systems, inorganic molecular electronics and thermoelectrics. He is the co-ordinator of the EC Programme GREEN Silicon undertaking research on microscale thermoelectric energy harvesting and is part of the EC ICT ZEROPOWER network on energy harvesting.
