Group Leader Biomedical Micro and Nano Engineering

Microfabrication is a precision-driven technique for creating detailed structures and devices at the micrometer scale. While its roots are in semiconductor manufacturing, its applications have expanded into diverse fields such as biomedical and microfluidics.

This method allows the creation and modification of structures with remarkable precision, even down to several nanometers in special cases. Our team of experts can provide individual process steps or develop comprehensive workflows tailored to your specific needs.

Core Offerings:

Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD): Leverage the benefits of plasma to increase deposition rates and ensure substrate uniformity and superior film quality, even at ambient temperatures.

PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition): Achieve superior thin film coatings with our state-of-the-art PVD techniques, known for optimal adhesion and elemental purity.

Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD): Use our CVD processes to deposit high-quality, uniform, defect-free films suitable for a wide range of applications.

Spin Coating: Our spin-coating capabilities enable unsurpassed results across a spectrum of polymers, ensuring precision in uniformity and thickness control.
