Welcome to MCN
MCN's mission is to enable Australian innovation using micro/nano technologies and our vision is to be the pre-eminent site in Australia for solving problems using micro/nano engineering technologies.
MCN provides an extensive array of fabrication and characterisation equipment as well as a collaborative environment for engagement between academic and industry clients, or simply for direct industry access. MCN has key expertise in lithography, thin film deposition, chemical etching, reactive ion etching and characterisation, using a broad range of materials including metals, silicon, diamond, nitrides and oxides.
The MCN provides a free consulting service by utilising the expertise of its on-site process engineers and resident MCN Technology Fellows.
Capabilities that are housed within MCN support the development of solutions for many national priorities and industry needs in areas such as solar energy, biosensing, micro/nano fluidic devices, bio/nano drug delivery, micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), micro/nano optics and medical bionics.
MCN is part of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) and a joint venture facility that brings together the technical expertise of six Victorian universities and CSIRO to support ANFF's mission. We are proud to be the central node of ANFF's Victorian facilities.
