The facility of the FAMES Lab took over 3 years to complete. Its progression can be seen in the time lapse montage below. This November, the facility was completed, a collaboration between arcDESIGN, Indiana University and its researchers, and handed over to our research team. During the completion of the construction, the lab members have been working hard to equip the facility with a wide array of precision equipment for the fabrication fiber-based devices development from concept to product. Based on the specializations of the doctoral researchers of the lab space, devices are created to function in optics, biomedical, and quantum physics engineering. In parallel, a lot of research is conducted in material science and multi-material three-dimensional printing technology. A list of our equipment is displayed on this website. Photos of the different stages of the enterprise of this construction project are shown further below. One can observe how the renovated space evolved over time to the facility now operational at the Multidisciplinary Engineering and Science Hall (MESH), at Indiana University.
