The Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre (QMNC) was established in 2009 with core capabilities in microtechnology, nanotechnology and micro/nanosystems.
Our expertise is in the fundamental theory of materials, materials development, microelectronics , micro electromechanical systems (MEMS) and microfluidics. Our research activities span across the disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology, applied mathematics and engineering.
The outcomes of our research are delivered through the following major projects:
- SPTS Technologies and Griffith Joint Development Program
- Surfaces, interfaces, porous materials and membranes
- Materials for energy storage and conversion
- Transport and flow in biomedical systems
- Silicon carbide on silicon (SiC on Si) technology
- Fundamental studies on micro- and nanoscale systems
- Preparation, properties and applications of graphene
- On-wafer graphene and sensing applications
- Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip Technology
- Exploration of GaN devices for power switching applications
- SiC-based power switches for efficient energy systems
