Micro- and nanostructures have dramatically changed our environment - although we have not really become aware of that - and will change it further in the years to come. Who remembers the first hard disks of a few megabytes that used to cost a fortune? Today, a hard drive of a few terabytes with a million times higher capacity, able to store a huge library or tens of thousands of hours of music, costs only a hundred euro. Similarly, any person has in his smartphone a computing capacity larger than the capacity of the national supercomputers that were used only thirty years ago.

The 1st European conference on cleanroom operation, management and user training took place in Trondheim on May 8 – 9, 2017. The meeting was arranged by the Nordic Nanolab Network and Euronanolab.

Electrum Laboratory and Albanova Nanofab

Electrum Laboratory and Albanova Nanofabrication Facility are the two laboratories operated within the KTH node of Myfab – the Swedish research infrastructure for micro- and nanofabrication.

In Kista the Electrum Laboratory with a 1300 m2 cleanroom area and 1500 m2 additional laboratories is outstanding for fabrication and characterization in the nano and micro scale, supporting the whole chain from education, research and development, to prototyping and production.

At KTH Campus the Albanova Nanofabrication Facility has a 285 m2 cleanroom and 60 m2 additional laboratories. With focus on direct writing technology, the Albanova Nanolab is a flexible resource for basic research requiring nanofabrication and nanocharacterization with a wide variety of materials and substrate.

Both the laboratories maintain exciting meeting places for students, researchers, and entrepreneurs in different disciplines, ranging from fundamental science to mature technology. In this environment we offer you the chance to realize your ideas.
