Australian National Fabrication Facility – Griffith University Node (ANFF-Q)

Australian National Fabrication Facility

The Australian National Fabrication Facility Queensland Node provides researchers and industry with open access to state-of-the-art fabrication capabilities to engage in interdisciplinary research. The Queensland Node at Griffith University and the University of Queensland specialises in microfluidics, organic electronics, biomaterials and novel semiconductor materials. ANFF is a not-for-profit network of 8 research infrastructure facilities established under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy. Services include the scale-up prototyping of devices such as organic solar cells, organic light emitting diodes, organic circuit elements, microfluidic devices, bioassay platforms, biomaterial scaffolds, microbioreactors and production of materials for microelectronics to semiconductor-industry standards. Researchers are able to: gain direct access to facilities under expert guidance; contract for specialised products to be made; or undertake contract research projects.
