Welcome to MCN
Welcome to the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication! The mission of MCN is to facilitate the integration of nanotechnology techniques into the Research and Development activities that support Australia’s innovation and manufacturing economies.
MCN is part of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) and is proud to be the central node of ANFF's Victorian facilities.
ANFF was established to provide open access to state of the art fabrication equipment and processes for the industrial, research and academic communities. The MCN is a joint venture facility that brings together the technical expertise of six Victorian universities and CSIRO to support ANFF's mission.
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.
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.
