Facilities

My group is involved in the running of several key facilities at the University of Canterbury. We use the Nanofabrication Facility for all our fabrication needs and maintain a Biological Application Laboratory for experimentation and device prototyping involving biological organisms. We also share culture and imaging facilities related to the Biomolecular Interaction Centre.
  1. Nanofabrication Facility
    This facility is hosted by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and is equipped for thin-film deposition, thermal processing, micro-milling, soft-, photo- (including mask fabrication), nanoimprint- , electron beam and interference lithography, wet and dry etching, and materials characterization.
  2. Biomolecular Interaction Centre
    The Biomolecular Interaction Centre is based primarily in the School of Biological Sciences and hosts a variety of equipment related to the study of biomolecular interactions.
  3. Confocal Microscopy Suite
    The Confocal Microscopy Suite is based in the School of Biological Sciences and hosts an inverted Leica TCS SP5 confocal microscope equipped with a full range of lasers from 405nm to 633nm, as well as incubation and heating/cooling chambers.
  4. Biological Applications Laboratory
    This laboratory is hosted by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and contains facilities for PC-2 Biological Containment. It is certified for cell-culture and micro-organism experiments, and equipped with fluorescence microscopy and microfluidic flow control tools.
