Workshop on Micro/Nano Electronic Device Fabrication facilities including Clean Room

The department of Electronics and Communication Engineering at Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University), Chandigarh has organized a one-day Workshop on “Micro/Nano electronic device fabrication facilities including clean room” on February 15, 2019 in technical collaboration with IEEE Chandigarh Subsection. The event is financially supported by Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP)-III an initiative of Government of India and the World Bank. The workshop was jointly inaugurated by Prof. Neelu Jain, Head, Electronics and Communication Engineering department and Prof. Neena Gupta, Chairperson, IEEE Chandigarh Subsection.
The scientists, engineers and faculty from reputed research organizations including Semiconductor Laboratory (ISRO) Mohali, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Mandi and PEC discussed about the various state-of art facilities available for the fabrication and characterisation of Micro/Nano electronic devices in prestigious institutions across the country. However, such facilities are not available in and around Chandigarh. Dr. Arun Kumar Singh, Associate Professor and Coordinator, workshop gave a brief presentation about the recent funding of Rs. 217.00 Lakhs to ECE Department by DST under FIST programme to establish the electronic device fabrication and characterisation facilities. He further informed that Board of Governors (BoG), PEC has approved the financial support of 164.80 Lakhs to develop a clean room of class 1,000 and class 10,000 by converting existing old physics laboratory near DTE office. The experts deliberated about the current requirement of clean room after visiting the site and finalised the various requirements and technical specifications/BoQ for the proposed clean room in ECE Department. Developing clean room facilities equipped with electronic device fabrication and characterisation tools will not only enable experimental exposure to PhD/postgraduate/graduate students of PEC and JNEC Sunder Nagar but also complement the existing available in nearby intuitions such as INST Mohali, IISER Mohali, Panjab University, IIT Ropar etc.
