Realize your nano vision

Irnova has delevoped a IR-sensor for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). The detector can be used for sensing metan in the chemical industry.

IRnova is a Swedish high-tech company engaged in the development, manufacturing and marketing of high-end cooled infrared detectors and related technology and is working in the Electrum laboratory.


Professor Mikael Östling at the department of Integrated Devices and Circuits, KTH, has recieved a grant from the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF). The grant is for research into "Ge-nanowiretransistors for sequential 3D integration" and the amount is 32 million SEK and will be covering a 5 year period.

A new tool, for conventional vapour priming and image reversal, was recently installed at MSL. Image reversal is a process where exposed areas of positive resist remain after processing (thus behaving like a negative resist). This offers several advantages, such as: Better resolution compared to negative resist. Negative sidewall profile suitable for liftoff processing. Possibility to control sidewall profile with exposure dose. Possibility to get positive or negative images with the same mask independent of...
ÅAC Microtec has created a new laboratory for development and production of electronic modules in the MSL cleanroom.

The Swedish company Scint-X has secured SEK 5 million in invested capital from Praktikerinvest. The funds will ensure that Scint-X can continue the commercialization of its products and to build up high-volume manufacturing capacity of x-ray scintillators.
