Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF)
Established in 2007, under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy, the ANFF links seven complementary university based nodes throughout Australia to provide researchers with access to state of the art fabrication facilities.
The capability provided by ANFF enables users to process hard materials (metals, semiconductors, composites and ceramics) and soft materials (polymers and polymer-biological moieties) and transform these into structures that have applications in sensors, medical devices, nano-photonics and nano-electronics.
The nodes, which are located across Australia, draw on existing infrastructure and expertise. The ANFF commitment is to provide a world class user facility which is underpinned by the sharing of best practices in service provision across the nodes.
