Laboratory for Advanced Fabrication Technologies

The Laboratory for Advanced Fabrication Technologies (LAFT) focuses on the development and application of advanced additive fabrication techniques for realizing precision microelectronic and electromechanical systems. We are strongly interdisciplinary; we develop new materials, tools and processes, with a focus on a deep physical understanding, and then apply these capabilities to realize a range of systems in microelectronics, medical devices, precision electromechanical systems, wearables, and sensing and actuation.

The laboratory is led by Prof. Vivek Subramanian, who joined EPFL in 2018 after spending almost 20 years as a professor at the University of California, Berkeley. The lab is in the process of migrating to EPFL, with the team currently split across the two institutions. The lab is growing rapidly at EPFL and is always looking for talented PhD students and postdocs. We are not hiring any new personnel at Berkeley at this time.
