The Nanometer Structure Consortium at Lund University

The Nanometer Structure Consortium (nmC), founded in 1988, supports and coordinates activities within nanoscience and nanotechnology at Lund University.

Our overarching goal is to use nanostructures to address important needs of society, such as solving the energy challenge and improving the quality of life.

More specifically, our scientific focus are the materials science, the safety and the fundamental physics and chemistry of highly controlled, functional nanostructures, as well as their applications in fundamental science, in energy conversion, in electronics and in the life sciences.  This includes the continuous development of advanced tools for the fabrication, characterization and theory of nanostructures, with a current focus on semiconductor nanowires. 

Key resources are Lund Nano Lab, an open nanofabrication facility run by the nmC, as well as a wide range of advanced characterization instruments organized in Lund Nano Characterization Labs. We are strongly engaged in nanoscience education from the undergraduate through the postdoctoral levels, as well as in entrepreneurship and innovation.

Our work is organized into six scientific focus areas that revolve around our three key resources Lund Nano lab (LNL), Lund Nano Characterization Labs (LNCL) and Nanoeducation (Edu).

Annual meeting 2014

The nmC annual meeting was held on October 13 as part of NanoForum Connect: 2014.
