The University’s new flagship Centre for Integrative Semiconductor Materials (CISM) aims to further stimulate growth in this area by delivering a bespoke, integrated facility for semiconductor research and technology development. Prior to the CISM facility being completed, the University seeks to procure specialist semiconductor processing and characterisation equipment of which the proposed Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Laser Annealing Tool (hereafter the ‘WBG-LAT’) is a major element
