LUND Lund University was founded in 1666 and is ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 600 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition. Lund University is also the home of the national synchrotron facility MAX IV.
The MAX IV laboratory has the highest quality of X-rays available to scientists from academia and industry in the whole world. These X-rays enable the study of materials that we use today and improve them beyond the performance that we know. The national Center for High Resolution Electron Microscopy (nCHREM) offers instruments and expertise for imaging, analysis and sample preparation for a wide variety of sample types.
The new ETEM is an Environmental Transmission Electron Microscope that provides unique in situ observations of semiconductor nanowire growth at atomic resolution. Lund Nano Lab (LNL) is an open research facility that is available to both academic research groups, start-up and company users.
The LNL, together with nCHREM, are the most important resource parts of NanoLund consortium, which is the one of the world's first nano-research environments. Our world-class clean room facility is equipped with state-of-the-art semiconductor processing and metrology equipment. We welcome all users to access the equipment for fundamental research and development in the fields of materials science, nanotechnology, microelectronics, life science and quantum technology.
