The thin film lab is a multidisciplinary lab that allow the development of new concepts and ideas.
This lab has three distinct areas. It is equipped with one chemical lab with a microwave synthesizer equipment to produce nanoparticles of different materials, a production area with two laser systems to cut, engrave and process different type of polymeric materials, several ovens and furnaces, a sputtering system and a thermal evaporator system to develop thin films. The third area is dedicated to lab-on-paper technology for the production of low cost biosensors and digital microfluidics and as also two 3D printer for the development of prototypes and to support the ongoing projects.
