The Nanofabrication Laboratory at Chalmers now accessible for European Researchers

20.02.2006


One of the most advanced university cleanrooms in the world, the Nanofabrication Laboratory, at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience, MC2, at Chalmers University of Technology, in Göteborg, Sweden, is now offering European Universities and SME:s access, free of charge, to advanced micro- and nanotechnology fabrication resources.



MC2 is the leading Swedish research facility in nanoelectronics and photonics. MC2 has secured a contract with the European Commission to open up the cleanroom laboratory free of charge for European users. The laboratory provides means of fabricating structures and devices for microwave electronics, photonics, micro-/nanosystems and nanotechnology.

The projectnamed MC2ACCESS started 1st of January 2006, and will run for 48 months. The access is available for universities and other organisations that freely disseminate their results. The sole exception to this rule is that the contract may cover the first access of small or medium sized companies. The user groups accessing the infrastructure must be based in any of the EU-member states (except Sweden) or in any of the associate and candidate countries.


- We are extremely happy to have been able to negotiate this contract says Prof. Stefan Bengtsson, Head of the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience at Chalmers. Since our cleanroom laboratory opened in 2001, we have seen a continuous increase and broadening of the use of the facility. This contract with the EC will allow us to act not only as a national Swedish facility, but as a true European research infrastructure.

Details on the possibilities of access offered, how to apply for an access period and the selection procedure can be found on the project website or by contacting Dr. Ulf Södervall, project manager of MC2ACCESS.

During the coming weeks the access opportunity of MC2ACCESS will be spread to European researchers through the website, flyers and through European research projects ant network.

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
