About the Australian National Fabrication Facility

Established under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS), ANFF provides researchers and industry with access to state-of-the-art fabrication capabilities through a network of 8 nodes including 21 institutions throughout Australia. The ANFF facility portfolio consists of over 500 instruments with projects valued at over $200m. ANFF nodes draw on existing infrastructure and expertise providing a critical mass of capabilities in their respective specialisations. Each node provides their facilities on an open access basis enabling researchers to engage in interdisciplinary research across the following fields:

  • Micro and Nano electronics
  • Microfluidics and MEMS
  • Bio-nano applications
  • Advanced materials
  • Sensors and medical devices
  • Photonics

ANFF provides services for both academic researchers and industry. 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.
