UK to crush China’s influence over chip market with £12m for research base: ‘World leader’

  • July 05, 2022

In that vein, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) — the Government’s research funding agency — has awarded £12million to support a leading semiconductor research centre.

The product of a collaboration between the University of Sheffield, the University of Cambridge and University College London, the National Epitaxy Facility has already supported £125million of research across 25 universities since it was founded in 2017.

(Epitaxy is the name given to the deposition of layers on a crystalline substrate, and is used to create the foundations of semiconductor devices.)

The new funding, the University of Sheffield explained, will allow the National Epitaxy Facility to continue to support world-class research and development in the UK for the next five–ten years by supplying bespoke semiconductor wafers to world-class semiconductor research projects in both universities and industry.

The facility will also provide the expertise and resources needed to translate basic research in mass manufactured commercial applications.
