HH Dow is the home of Chemical Engineering, but our faculty can also be found in the Beyster Building, GG Brown and the North Campus Research Complex. These shared spaces facilitate interdisciplinary work with computer scientists, electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, biomedical engineers, materials scientists, medical professionals and many others.
The Chemical Engineering Department offers a variety of shared facilities in addition to faculty lab space. Researchers also have access to college and university facilities. Below
Clean Room Facility
The Chemical Engineering cleanroom, a class 1000 cleanroom, is located on the 3rd floor of the HH Dow building. The cleanroom includes capabilities to process SU-8, glass and poly(dimethylsiloxane).
- E-Beam Evaporator (Gold/Chromium/Oxide/Titanium)
- Mask Aligner
- Photoresist and SU8 Spinners
- Gold and Aluminum Wire Bonders
- Parylene Coater
- Surface Profilometer
- Acid, Base, Solvent and Photoresist Fume Hoods
- Oxygen/Argon Plasma Reactive Ion Etcher
- Heated Hydraulic Press
Mammalian Cell Culture Lab
This is a lab for the culture of mammalian cells. It is used by faculty and students in Chemical Engineering. Lab contains basic equipment needed for cell culture including incubators, microscopes, centrifuges and laminar flow hoods.
Electron Microbeam Analysis Laboratory
The University of Michigan Electron Microbeam Analysis Laboratory (EMAL) is a university-wide user facility for the microstructural and microchemical characterization of materials. EMAL currently has two locations—the west basement of the Space Research Building on North Campus and the second floor of the C.C. Little Building on Central Campus.
