Overview

Through an advanced suite of tools and substantial expertise, ANFF-Q specialises in microfluidics, organic electronics and optoelectronics, biomaterials, novel semiconductor materials and characterisation. The node comprises four facilities, two at the University of Queensland and two at Griffith University.

The innovative and integrated institutes and centres that play host to the ANFF-Q facilities provide a dynamic, exciting and collaborative atmosphere where researchers can get the most from their ideas with the best possible support and world class equipment.

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.

Node Competencies

Specialist fields: Microfluidics; bionanodevice fabrication; microelectronics; advanced photoresist synthesis, purification and characterisation; organic electronic device fabrication and testing (OPV, OLED, OFET, OSensors); functional organic/polymer and bio-inspired nanomaterials synthesis and characterisation (through the National Centre for Functional Organic Synthesis); biopolymer processing and nanocomposites; and SiC processing.

Flagship Facilities: A prototyping inkjet; high-throughput photoresist, monomer, polymer and nanoparticle synthesis units; A semi-automated nanoimprint lithography unit and plasma bonder for surface and device patterning down to ~10 nm; A deep reactive ion etcher; A state-of-the-art surface and device characterisation suite;  Imaging and Raman/AFM characterisation unit; Globally unique epitaxial reactor for SiC on Si wafer production.
