About Us

The Microfabrication Laboratory (MFL) is part of the Case School of Engineering, and is professionally staffed and managed. We serve investigators from a number of departments within the University as well as external organizations looking for prototype fabrication and R&D services. The MFL is a 5500 sq. ft. class 100 clean room facility that facilitates the fabrication of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and other devices. Fabrication equipment used in the measurement, deposition, patterning, etching, and heat treatment of microelectronic devices is available.
