Boulder Microfabrication Facility


Central to fulfilling many of the Division’s programmatic goals, and those of other divisions at NIST-Boulder, the Quantum Electromagnetics Division is responsible for operation of the state-of-the-art Boulder Microfabrication Facility (BMF).


The Boulder Microfabrication Facility (BMF) is a 1700 m2 (18,000 ft2), ISO class 5 (class 100) clean room dedicated to providing state-of-the-art micro- and nano-fabrication capabilities to meet the microelectronic and microelectromechanical systems needs of NIST-Boulder staff members and their direct collaborators. Roughly 60 % of all the research on site passes through the BMF in one critical way or another.
