ANFF-Vic ties the largest open-access cleanroom in the southern hemisphere, the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (MCN), with five university-based hubs and CSIRO spread across Victoria providing a full complement of nanofabrication capabilities and expertise.
Members of the ANFF-Vic Joint Venture include: Monash University; University of Melbourne (Materials Characterisation and Fabrication Platform); Deakin University (Institute for Frontier Materials); La Trobe University (Centre for Materials Surface Science); Swinburne University of Technology (ANFF Biointerface Engineering Hub); RMIT University (Micro Nano Research Facility); Victoria University; and CSIRO (CSIRO Manufacturing).
The Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication is home to ANFF’s headquarters. The Centre is a world-class, purpose-built facility boasting state-of-the-art cleanrooms (class 10,000 and class 100), reconfigurable biochemistry and PC2 labs, a microscopy lab and focused ion beam lab. These specialised work environments house top-of-the-line micro and nanofabrication equipment and instrumentation.
Current expertise is provided in the areas of advanced materials and biotechnology, leading to the development of a wide range of customised sensors, actuators, and devices applied to areas from biomedicine, and energy to nanoelectronics and the environment.
