Welcome to the Caltech Nanofabrication Group!
Under the leadership of Professor Axel Scherer, the group is primarily interested in the design, fabrication, and characterization of nanoscale photonic, magnetic, and fluidic devices and systems.
We'd like to invite you to explore the site, and please contact us if you find something interesting. Stop by if you happen to be in Pasadena, or perhaps we'll see you at a conference soon!
