NanoLund, the Center for Nanoscience at Lund University

NanoLund, formerly known as the Nanometer Structure Consortium, 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 NanoLund, 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.

As our environment develops and grows, we often think of it in terms of a tree. Its roots represent our core competences, developed over the past decades. Supported
 by these roots, the tree’s crown represents the scientific areas where we are active, including materials science and quantum physics. Its branches include a broad range of dynamically growing areas of applied research where we often work in collaboration with experts in the respective fields.
