Lund University offers a wide range of competence in advanced nano-processing and characterisation within NanoLund, the Center of Nanoscience at Lund University. The focus of the scientific research in NanoLund includes materials synthesis, nanoelectronics and photonics, quantum physics, nanosafety, energy-related applications, neuronanoscience and others. Lund University’s main nanofabrication facility, Lund Nano Lab (LNL) is an open-access cleanroom facility, which provides a wide range of nano- and micro-fabrication techniques for the NanoLund members and other researchers. Advanced characterisation is the main activity of the National Center for High Resolution Electron Microscopy (nCHREM), which gives state-of-the-art TEM access.
The main area of research at NanoLund is III-V semiconductor nanowires, that includes both fundamental science and applications, more information can be found on the NanoLund home page. Lund University participates in the NFFA-Europe project by providing access to LNL and nCHERM tools and nanofabrication processes and in a Joint Research Activity. The complete list of the LNL tools is available on its Laboratory Information and Management System (LIMS) home page.
The Labs are within 400 m of each other and both are within 4 km of the national MAX IV synchrotron facility and the upcoming European Spallation Source ERIC, which is under construction and will be starting its user programme in 2023.
