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.
Academic staff members of this group are:
- Professor S Taylor
- Dr K Hoettges
- Dr S Khursheed
- Dr S Maher
- Dr I Mitrovic
- Dr M Raja
- Dr I Sandall
