As one of the strong ties between RIT and the Town of Henrietta, students from the Rush-Henrietta Central School District regularly visit RIT microelectronic engineering labs—just as a different group of youngsters recently toured RIT’s Semiconductor & Microsystems Fabrication Laboratory. Gowns are required to protect microchips from contamination, and yellow light (resulting from filtering short wavelengths from white light) is used to avoid exposure of the photoresist during microchip processing. RIT’s Department of Microelectronic Engineering is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
