In this work, we show the methodology to fabricate hierarchical nano-structures of various geometrical parameters to mimic closely gecko’s adhesion system. The relevant geometrical parameters investigated are a) the aspect ratio of the fibrils b) [...]
Nanotechnology research is still in its infancy, and while nanotechnology is widely seen as having huge potential, the pharmaceutical industry remains skeptical that success at the bench scale can successfully be translated into high volume [...]
The performance of a new electron beam resist called SM20L-15 for use in electron beam lithography has been investigated. It was found that the clearing dose of this resist was 1025uC/cm2. The result is that [...]
In this work, we study Atomic Force Microscope local oxidation lithography to precisely fabricate nanometer-scale structures from graphene, a recently discovered material with exceptional electrical properties. We have systematically studied oxidation parameters (electric field, humidity, [...]
The thermoelectric figure of merit (ZT) of a single β-Silicon Carbide (SiC) nanowire (NW) was measured using the four-point three-omega (3-ω) method for the first time. The electrical conductivity (σ), thermal conductivity (κ), and Seebeck [...]

Dip-pen Nanolithography is used to fabricate nanopatterned substrates for stem cell experiments. Factors which are known to play a role in stem cell differentiation are immobilized on these substrates. The highly controlled order, in which [...]
Photonic curing is uniquely suited to rapidly sinter printed films in an assembly line or roller environment. Previous work has focused on measuring the resistivity of films sintered using photonic curing and comparing those results [...]
The development of nanotechnology based devices requires rapid prototyping methods that can be applied in combination with well-known clean room processing techniques. We show that focused ion beam (FIB) Ga+-ion implantation can be used to [...]
Micro-cantilevers are frequently used as probes for micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) based sensing applications. Usually micro-cantilever based sensors work by detecting changes in cantilever vibration modes (e.g., bending or torsional vibration frequency) or surface stresses - [...]

Electromagnetic waves in terahertz ranges are possible to harmonize with molecule vibrations of various saccharides or proteins, and expected to control the biological material syntheses through the frequency excitements. In this investigation, metals and ceramics [...]
Combining the advantages of the structural, chemical, and lyotropic properties of membrane lipids with the nanostructuring capabilities of dip-pen nanolithograpy (DPN), makes possible creation of semisynthetic functional lipid nanostructures. Two examples of critical dimensions that [...]
The Dip-Pen Nanolithography (DPN) process uses a chemically coated scanning probe tip (the “pen”) to directly deposit a material (“ink”) with nanometer precision onto a substrate. Several experimental parameters have been observed to influence the [...]
The Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) links 7 nodes to provide researchers and industry with access to state-of-the-art fabrication facilities across 20 participating universities. Historically Australia has fostered internationally recognised centres of excellence in a [...]

The development of standard method for nanoparticle preparation using food-grade materials is helpful for various nanotechnology-related applications for food product. In this study, bovine serum albumin (BSA) nanoparticles were prepared using a desolvation method. The [...]
In this work, an in-situ chemical growth method was reported for grafting patterned gold nanoparticles (GNPs) conductive layers on polyethylene terephthalate (PET) substrates. This in-situ grown gold nanoparticle film could be used as a sensing [...]

GaN has relatively high refractive index and results in low light extraction efficiency in photonics applications. A novel way to combine the various methods to enhace the efficiency is to construct a pyramid array on [...]
Microfluidic components are widely used in the design of both bioanalytical and diagnostic microdevices. The miniaturized sample volumes together with modifications of the surface chemistry and localization of molecules within microfluid channels has opened many [...]
In this paper, a new method for site-specific deposition of fibrous nanostructure is demonstrated using laser induced reverse transfer (LIRT). The LIRT method makes it achievable to generate and deposit fibrous nanostructure of a wide [...]

VDK 4000 is a Flexible Robotic Environment (FRE) direct write system. The idea behind Flexible Robotic Environment (FRE) concept is building a robotic modular system around an application instead of having an application fit within [...]
The aim of this study is to develop visible-light photocatalyst nanopowders by N2 modified TiO2 matrix via gas-phase evaporation condensation with thermal plasma as a heating source. The formed visible-light TiO2 nanopowders are subsequently doped [...]
In this study, a new precision stage was developed using self-lever-mechanism to magnify its moving displacement optically. The developed precision stage was constructed as a position-sensitive photodiode (PSPD), a laser diode (LD), and a hinge-connected [...]
