Realize your nano vision

Education & Training

Education & training are important functions provided by the Nanofabrication Laboratory. In its simplest form, hands-on training on the use of process tools is given by the staff. Classroom instruction is also given first in the form of The Cleanroom Introduction Course, which is a pre-requisite for all those who wish to access to Laboratory as a user. This covers such areas as safety, handling chemicals, proper cleanroom behaviour, and specific information concerning the Nanofabrication Laboratory. The course is offered on a monthly basis, and at additional times if the demand is sufficient.

A graduate course in micro and nano processing technologies is also offered by the Laboratory. This gives a theoretical introduction to the common processes used in a cleanroom environment.

With its considerable competence and experience in education, courses can be customized to suit any partner’s needs or interests.

Cleanroom Introduction Course

You need the "Introduction course" to be able to enter the cleanroom and to get access to the booking system. You also need a "driving licence" to be able to book a particular tool.

Contact Ulf Södervall above for upcoming course dates.

The course dates are tentative. Note that a course may be postponed if there are too few participants, always make a booking beforehand on-line via the membership application found at:

where you should include information such as
- Name
- Birth date
- Research group/"kostnadställe"/"projectnumber"
- Dept/Section or Company
- Group leader/laboratory supervisor
- Dept/Section or Company
- Group leader/laboratory supervisor
- Phone number(stationary/Mobile)
- your position (Ph D student, Masters student, Post Doc etc)
- type of work to be done( research project, masters thesis work, etc)
- how long time will your activities last
- your access card number to Ulf Södervall.

A cleanroom manual will be handed out during the course. 
get the manual as a pdf 

If you have any questions:
- course fees, contact Ulf Södervall
- the booking system, contact Peter Modh.
- driving licences or equipment, contact Tool Responsible
