The Queensland Microtechnology Facility is part of the Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre at Griffith University. It has been supported by the Queensland State Government through the Smart State Research Facilities Funding Initiative and the ANFF. The QMF is distinguished by the following features:
- Equipment that provides a unique integration of research flexibility and processing at semiconductor-industry standards, which is aimed at bridging the gap between University research and Industry.
- A unique processing focus on developing SiC films on Si wafers that is aimed at integrating the benefits of the standard Si technology with the superior electrical, thermal, optical, and mechanical properties of crystalline SiC.
- The unique equipment for epitaxial growth of SiC films on Si wafers and the standard semiconductor processes are used as a platform technology for research and development of a broad range of superior semiconductor devices, including a nonvolatile memory cell, power switches, solar cells, devices for micro-electro-mechanical systems, and optoelectronic devices.
Up to 100 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students will be able to immerse themselves in science when Griffith University hosts the inaugural Indigenous STEM Experience Day. To celebrate Dr Chris Matthews recent achievement as national winner of the CSIRO’s Indigenous STEM Professional Award, Griffith Sciences will host the event, themed Future Earth – Water, to encourage more First […]
Thousands of people poured through this year’s stellar World Science Festival event – many of them enjoying Griffith University’s own inspiring and engaging programs. From the sounds of 84 pianos at the Queensland Conservatorium to tackling important environmental issues in main stage events and providing hands-on fun for budding scientists of the future, Griffith had all […]
Technology superstars like Bill Gates and Elon Musk have described Artificial Intelligence as “humanity’s biggest existential threat” with the potential to “destroy us all”. But Griffith University’s senior lecturer in ICT, Dr David Tuffley, doesn’t think we need to worry. “The reality of it is if you can your head straight with this whole idea then there’s […]
