The Electrum Laboratory and Albanova Nanofabrication Facility are open environments. Whether you are from academia or industry, you are welcome to work together with our skilled personnel in a collaboration project designed according to your needs. You will gain open access to our processes and calibrated characterization tools. Our processing tools are very flexible in terms of materials and substrate sizes and many can handle small to medium scale production volumes with strict control.
As an individual user of our laboratories you will get all necessary training and guidance. Our education programs help you to make the most efficient usage of our facilities and enable you to qualify for using the tools on your own. After you get the license to use a tool, our skilled personnel are always available for further assistance and additional training.
For LIMS and Electrum cleanroom access, see Laboratory introduction.
As an alternative we can perform the processing and characterization for you, as single measurements, individual process steps or a full process sequence to fabricate a device as a prototype or in a larger series. We work according to your pre-defined scheme or define the processes together with you in a process definition project. We may also perform all necessary in-process and post-process characterization to verify the results.
Our research and development groups are willing to share competence and build new knowledge together with you in commissioned research and development projects. Access to the laboratory resources may be a part of the project.
We have unique possibilities to create and perform advanced courses in laboratory and cleanroom infrastructure, nano and micro fabrication, advanced characterization techniques, modern device design etc. at both undergraduate and graduate levels. We also offer professional courses, designed according to your specific needs and strategic goals.
In our incubator your manufacturing or device idea is given the time and possibility to grow in a controlled manner. You get access to our infrastructure, equipment and personnel resources and you may rent space to place your own proprietary tools in the laboratory environment.
Working in this mode you can postpone substantial investments until your business idea is proven to be sustainable. You get the technical support needed and you work within a fully functional infrastructure – also in the cleanroom, with all needed media. You can concentrate on your technical development and we serve you with the necessities.
The network of people active in the laboratories is open for you; from the skilled technicians, process and development engineers, to researchers and entrepreneurs. The open environment offers a base to start collaborations and eventually recruit the right individuals for your company. Our national and international collaboration partners are also available for you and we have some experience from fund raising.
