Research and Development Projects

LaserMicroFAb Project

The LaserMicroFAb Project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7-PEOPLE-2012-IAPP), under grant agreement no. 314459.

LaserMicroFAb was a joint research programme exploiting the knowledge and expertise of two academic partners (Aix-Marseille University and National Technical University Athens) and one industrial partner (Oxford Lasers) through inter-sectorial exchange of knowledge, networking activities and training in the areas of advanced laser processing for organic electronic devices and biosensors. The goal of this project was to integrate the innovative aspects of laser digital micro-fabrication processes in one laser processing platform.
The innovative aspects integrated during the project were:

  • Selective Laser Micro and Nano-Patterning
  • Laser digital micro-fabrication of 2D metallic NP interconnects and sensors
  • Laser micro-printing/immobilization of delicate photosynthetic biomaterials for biosensors fabrication

Project Timeline

March 2013 – Project launch

February 2017 – Project close

June 2017 – Project update: Sixteen (16) total Marie-Curie Fellows from UK, France and Greece trained in the LaserMicroFAb-developed technologies.
