The Microfabrication Laboratory (LMF) works as an open-multiuser R&D laboratory created to support the scientific and technological communities. It offers facilities and knowledge for microfabricated product and process development. LMF collaborates on projects from innovative companies, academic researchers, and it also performs in-house R&D in the following fields: microfabrication, microfluidics, chemical and physical sensors/detectors, and point-of-care testing platforms.
LMF has a wide experience on device manufacture processes such as: optical and soft lithography, thin film deposition, plasma and wet chemical etching, bonding, and electroformation. This set of techniques ensures the microfabrication of prototypes for different science and technology areas. Furthermore, the LMF users benefit from other laboratories at LNNano that offer a variety of characterization techniques, including: microscopy, tomography, electrical and spectral measurements, and surface analysis.
