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: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
