PSI - offical website: www.psi.ch - is the largest national research centre for natural and engineering sciences within Switzerland.
It performs world-class research in three main subject areas: Matter and Material, Energy and the Environment, and Human Health. Several large-scale facilities are presently operated at PSI such as the SINQ neutron spallation source, the Swiss Light Source (SLS), the SμS muon source and the hard x-ray Free Electron Laser source SwissFEL is presently under construction.
In this project, PSI will participate with the Laboratory for Micro and Nanotechnology (LMN), founded as a PSI research unit in 1993 - http://www.psi.ch/lmn
LMN operates state-ofthe-art equipment for nanolithography, thin film technology, pattern transfer and fine analysis, mainly run in about 500 m2 of clean-room environment.
PSI role in NFFA Europe:
PSI contributes to Joint Research on In-Operando and high thoughput methods; High Precision Manufacturing; Time-resolved ultrafast probes on nanosystems; it contributes also to Innovation and networking activities
