Australian National Fabrication Facility – UQ 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 University of Queensland and Griffith University 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.
