Nanolab Science Village

Transitioning to the next level, NanoLund is building a new, state-of-the-art laboratory next to the exclusive research facilities ESS and MAX IV, in Lund’s Science Village. Nanolab Science Village will also offer researchers unique opportunities to provide humanity with new knowledge for a sustainable civilization – paving the way for the establishment of Lund University in the emerging district.

Sketch of a future part of a city.
A lab where you can “craft” new materials on the atomic level, bringing together cross-disciplinary scientists to produce nanomaterials and semiconductor components. A neighborhood with major research infrastructures, complementary to each other. And most importantly: an open environment where academia, industry, and society can meet and collaborate, finding solutions for a sustainable world.

“Nanotechnology and nanoscience are essential to face global challenges and achieve a sustainable world. We are already working on this, but we are bursting at the seams. For researchers and industry to work together to solve the problems of the future, we need to be able to offer hands-on training to our students for tomorrow’s business. Integrating research, education, and nanolab activities in Science Village is an ideal way to do this,” says Anders Mikkelsen, NanoLund’s director.


  • State-of-the-art resources in nanofabrication for NanoLund researchers and the wider research community
  • Educating students and researchers in nanofabrication and semiconductor processing
  • Expand cooperation within Scandinavia, MAX IV, ESS, companies, and other European and international cleanroom facilities
  • Provide an excellent research infrastructure for micro- and nanotechnology. An infrastructure for developing and fabricating materials, structures, and components for advanced research in physics, materials science, nanoscience, chemistry, life sciences, energy and environment, and nanoelectronics
  • Outstanding training opportunities for the fabrication of semiconductor components, and micro- and nanostructures for undergraduate students
  • Open access infrastructure for academia, institutes, and companies
  • Complementing and providing a platform for collaboration with MAX IV and ESS by offering an infrastructure for manufacturing and investigating samples at the micro- and nano-scale
  • Contribute to an innovation environment with active collaboration with companies
  • Provide stable and reproducible processes for cutting-edge applied and fundamental research
  • Built-in flexibility to support dynamic development
  • Design, workflows, and structures that provide even more safe handling of chemicals and gases
  • Larger areas, higher cleanliness, adequate access to ventilation, cooling, and electricity, allowing the installation of more modern equipment
  • Premises designed to meet modern technical, acoustic, ventilation, heating, and accessibility requirements
  • Nanolab Science Village will be part af Myfab, just as our current nanofabrication capability

Next stop: Science Village

  • Nanolab will be the third major materials science research infrastructure in Science Village, after MAX IV and ESS.
  • The lab is open to industry and start-up companies.
  • Striving to do pioneering science, NanoLund supports innovation, and has proudly seen several spin-off companies evolving.
