Materials Processing/Synthesis

Most of the materials processing equipment in KTH Materials Laboratory is situated at the two cleanroom facilities at KTH (see descriptions of the laboratories below) and are used for fabrication and characterization on the nano- and micro-scale. However, materials processing equipment categorized as Thermal Processes (heating in furnaces etc.) and Sample Preparation is widely spread on the different Schools at KTH. Moreover, there are two categories linked to synthesis in chemistry research, i.e. Preparation of Chemical Substances and Purification of Chemical Substances. Below is a list of materials processing tool categories. By following the links, you can get information about every specific instrument linked to this virtual laboratory. Observe that instruments can belong to more than one category.


Electrum Laboratory: The Electrum Laboratory is a research facility, which maintains a multitude of laboratories, covering most aspects of nano and microtechnology. In the flexible facilities of the Electrum Laboratory, both single samples and batches are equally welcome. Separate steps to full sequences are handled in fabrication and characterization. Sophisticated software for calculation and simulation is offered. Moreover, personnel are available to help you to master the wide world of nano and microtechnology. In the cleanroom, full process lines are maintained for Silicon CMOS, MEMS and compound semiconductors, including GaAs, InP and SiC. We also offer access to a wide variety of techniques for characterization of materials and devices. In addition to the facilities described above, the School of Chemical Science and Engineering and Greenhouse labs have equipment for preparation and purification of chemicals/materials.

Albanova Nanofabrication Facility: KTH Applied physics and SU Physics jointly run the Albanova Nanofabrication Facility located in Albanova University Center. It contains laboratory facilities for nano and micro scale fabrication, imaging and metrology. The center has a broad user spectrum with about 50 active users from several departments at KTH and SU.
