    The Nanofabrication Laboratory at Chalmers now accessible for European Researchers

    One of the most advanced university cleanrooms in the world, the Nanofabrication Laboratory, at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience, MC2, at Chalmers University of Technology, in Göteborg, Sweden, is now offering European Universities and SME:s access, free of charge, to advanced micro- and nanotechnology fabrication resources.

    MC2 is the leading Swedish research facility in nanoelectronics and photonics. MC2 has secured a contract with the European Commission to open up the cleanroom laboratory free of charge for European users. The laboratory provides means of fabricating structures and devices for microwave electronics, photonics, micro-/nanosystems and nanotechnology.

    The projectnamed MC2ACCESS started 1st of January 2006, and will run for 48 months. The access is available for universities and other organisations that freely disseminate their results. The sole exception to this rule is that the contract may cover the first access of small or medium sized companies. The user groups accessing the infrastructure must be based in any of the EU-member states (except Sweden) or in any of the associate and candidate countries.

    - We are extremely happy to have been able to negotiate this contract says Prof. Stefan Bengtsson, Head of the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience at Chalmers. Since our cleanroom laboratory opened in 2001, we have seen a continuous increase and broadening of the use of the facility. This contract with the EC will allow us to act not only as a national Swedish facility, but as a true European research infrastructure.

    Details on the possibilities of access offered, how to apply for an access period and the selection procedure can be found on the project website or by contacting Dr. Ulf Södervall, project manager of MC2ACCESS.

    During the coming weeks the access opportunity of MC2ACCESS will be spread to European researchers through the website, flyers and through European research projects ant network.
