Access to EBL and supporting facilities

The EBL and supporting fabrication facilities are available to researchers across the University.


For relatively small projects we can carry out the work on your behalf. For larger ongoing projects, we can provide comprehensive training and support to enable students and PDRAs to carry out their own fabrication.


In order to maintain our facilities adequately, it is necessary to levy a charge for using the systems. Quotes are available on request.

EBL work should be costed through URMS on any new grant proposals, but other methods of payment are available where this is not possible.

Contact us to discuss your requirements: we can help to identify the key technical challenges, and assist in the designing and planning phase, to give you the best possible chance of realising your objectives.

Please direct enquiries to Dr Paul Fry, manager of the EBL facility.
