Micro and nano-fabrication

Research synopsis

We help researchers to make their own devices by training them to use our equipment, or by using our engineering expertise to design and make devices by working closely with them. The devices we design and make are always the right size to address the scientific question, so they are often on the scale of individual cells and small tissues. The creation of tiny structures is called microfabrication, and we're also experts in macrofabrication, such as 3D printing. We also have expertise in electronics, optics and other manufacturing techniques.
