Lund Nano Characterization Labs

NanoLund possesses an extremely wide range of world-class characterization techniques ranging from microscopes capable of single-atom imaging to facilities for telemetric monitoring of animals. These characterization laboratories are, as different from Lund Nano Lab (LNL), distributed across Lund University. Two cornerstones of our success are the new cutting-edge characterization methods originally developed in Lund, and the enthusiastic and free sharing of facilities and expertise. To strengthen and coordinate these efforts Lund Nano Characterization Labs was created 2009.
