AFM imaging of large areas gets faster

Baltfab researchers have developed an atomic force microscopy (AFM) scanning technique which enables AFM imaging of large areas at unprecedented (up to 45 mm/s)  scanning speed. More information and the link to the paper can be found here: (

New process for lipid nanopatterning

BALTFAB scientists have published a paper on scanning probe-based printing of nanoscopic lipid phases. The process is based on fast transfer (up to 100 µm/s) of lipids, including those bearing functional groups, from the probe onto substrates with controlled hydrophilicity. The process allows obtaining lipid assemblies ranging from sub-monolayers to...

Baltfab has a Cell culture laboratory

A new cell culture laboratory now is set up at BALTFAB, as a part of the ongoing METASENS project led by Dr. Ramūnas Valiokas. The project will enable BALTFAB developing new services in the nano-bio domain, complementary to our surface molecular texturing abilities provided by micro-contact printing, piezoelectric ink-jet printing, dip...

Microfluidic Channels made by laser ablation

UV picosecond lasers are a good alternative to excimer lasers for  polymer processing, as 266 nm UV radiation produces better micro-machining quality  and extends the number of polymers that can be processed by a laser. We formed microfluidic channels in Nylon polyamide and acetal polymers, as well as etched holes in fiberglass and...
