Agile microfabrication facility

The agile microfabrication facility is established to fabricate solid state devices down to micrometre scale and enable research excellence in materials science, electronics, photonics, thermoelectrics, spintronics, MEMS/NEMS, microfluidics, sensors, energy storage and other science and technology disciplines. The nature of the research means frequent alterations to devices layout and processes modifications are required.



  • Micro pattern generator

    for direct writing applications and low volume mask making. The system can be used for applications such as Semiconductors, MEMS, Bio MEMS, Integrated Optics, Micro Fluidics or any other application that requires high precision, high-resolution microstructures.
  • Fume cupboard

    with photoresist spin coater, ultrasonic bath and hot plates.


suitable for routine surface cleaning and activation for a wide range of materials.


is a homebuilt microscope and micro-manipulator station purpose built for the fabrication of 2D heterostructures.
