BioMEMS, organic & silicon electronics

Research focuses on the design, fabrication, testing, measurement, analysis and modelling of micro/nano structures and devices that integrate silicon and related materials, polymers and biomolecules. This group is led by Professor Steve Hall.

Our research in this area is further broken up into three groups:

The cluster has a range of micro- and nano-manufacturing facilities, test and operation equipment for microfluidics (lab-on-chip) and sensors, biomedical, organic and silicon devices and circuits in an 800 sgm of class-100 clean room.

A significant activity on electrical and optical materials characterisation underpins the device-related work. Design and modelling is constructed using silvaco, cadence and coventor tools. Some highlights of the capabilities include spectro-ellipsometry, atomic force microscopy and nanofabrication, laser ablation micro/nano-fabrication and a pilot line for the production of polymer thin-film transistors.
