Outside View of Building
The UNINOVA building where CEMOP is accommodated is also shared with the CRI. The building has two floors. The clean room is installed on the lower level material. The researchers' and administration's offices are located on the upper floor.
CEMOP's clean room is divided into two parts: the Class 1000 and Class 10000 areas. The photolithography equipment is installed in the Class 1000 area, and because of this there is the need to use yellow lighting so that printing processes can take place.
