Researcher in fabrication clean room

ANFF-Q provides researchers and industry with open access to state-of-the-art fabrication capabilities to engage in interdisciplinary research. The Queensland Bio-nano node (at University of Queensland and Griffith University) specialises in microfluidics, organic electronics, biomaterials and novel semiconductor materials. ANFF nodes draw on existing infrastructure and expertise providing a critical mass of capabilities in their respective specialisations. 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 either gain direct access to facilities under expert guidance, contract for specialised products to be made or undertake contract research projects.
