AMO’s mission as a non-profit SME is to bridge the gap between university research and industrial application. In joint projects and in bilateral cooperation, research and development results are transferred to industry for the preservation and creation of jobs. The potential of nanotechnology is thus tapped in fields of application such as information technology, biotechnology and environmental technology. AMO operates a state-of-the-art 400 m² clean room under the direction of Prof. Lemme and offers a range of services from consulting to prototype development.

Heidelberg Instruments and SwissLitho AG joined forces in early 2018. Together, they offer the widest range of direct write micro- and nanolithography systems in the world, from low-cost desktop solutions to high-end writers for substrates larger than 1m. Their products are used for prototyping in R&D, industrial manufacturing, and academic research. A full wafer can be patterned in a few minutes with sub-micron resolution, making mask aligners obsolete. Single-nm resolution with simultaneous pattern inspection is achieved with the unique NanoFrazor technology. Systems from both companies can be used to obtain micro- and nanostructures with high aspect ratio as well as in grayscale mode, which makes them particularly suitable to create templates for NIL applications.

Grenoble Green Graphenofluid (GGG) is a R&D upgrading project, funded on the liquid phase exfoliation of graphitic microparticles by the use of hydrodynamic cavitation inside microchannels. That innovative and patented process produces graphene nanosheets whose thickness runs from 1 to 10 carbon layers, with an average 150 – 300 nm lateral size. Low hydraulic power is required, so that the low-cost mobile experimental facility is able to produce graphene nanosheets on demand, under the best possible conditions of safety. The graphenofluids are delivered in an aqueous solution with surfactant, at a concentration around 1g/L. Research is currently performed with a bio sourced solvent as the host liquid.
