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 multi-material fibre 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 robot’s actuation and operation. In Hamlyn centre, our Technology Services offer Low-volume specialized engineering, rapid prototyping and other fabrication services. We can enable testing and demonstration of micro-robot designs and provide support on fibre tethered microrobot and optical fibre-based tethered robots.
