Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication
Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (MCN) is located in Clayton, Victoria, next to the Australian Synchrotron. MCN is the Victorian node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) and is a collaborative initiative between federal and state governments, CSIRO, Monash University, The University of Melbourne, Swinburne University of Technology, La Trobe University, Deakin University and RMIT University. It is also the headquarters to the ANFF.
MCN’s ultimate purpose is to fill the gap in Australia for open access, multi-scale, multi-disciplinary nanofabrication infrastructure. The mission of MCN is to facilitate the integration of nanotechnology techniques into the Research and Development activities that support Australia’s innovation and manufacturing economies.
MCN is based at a purpose-built facility, adjacent to the Australian Synchrotron. Approximately half of the central facility’s research space consists of clean rooms (class 100 and 10,000) and the other half is occupied by biochemical laboratories.
