The Nano Lab combines a number of complementary techniques that enable both 2D and 3D nanofabrication.
Optical Sciences Centre
The Optical Sciences Centre conducts research addressing scientific and technological challenges in the domain of optical sciences spanning classical and quantum photonics, light–matter interactions, nanotechnology, biomedical and biosciences, quantum gases and quantum materials.
Nano Lab is partially funded by the state government through a Victorian Science Agenda grant, Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF).
Faculty and Research Office
The laboratory installed the nano-lithography equipment through a partnership between Swinburne and German company Raith. The industrial high power ultra-short pulse laser was acquired through a provisional patent licence to Lithuanian company Altechna Ltd.
Other international collaborations extend to Japan (Shizuoka University, Yokohama National University and Tokyo Institute of Technology), France (Bordeaux University) and the United States (University of Virginia), India (Indian Institute of Technology IIT-Madras), China (Jilin, Shandong Universities).
