The Hamlyn Centre Micro-Robot Fabrication and Characterisation platform is articulated around our clean room for microfabrication equipped with a NanoScribe system and expertise in both untethered and tethered microrobots. In addition, a multimaterial fiber platform allows for integration of those tethered robot into complex systems. Precision assembly tools complete the platform.Characterisation tools adapted to those devices allow for full characterisations and development of the prototypes.Finally, various micro and nano manipulation devices, both mechanical and optical, and micro force sensors can be used for the robots actuation and operation.
