I'ts a matter of size
Quick intro movie about nanotechnology
Visit the nano labs in Lund
How are nanostructures manufactured and what are the possibilities in a cleanroom of today? What are the capabilities of the latest microscopes to characterize and visualize on the nanoscale? Can you measure the size of nanoparticles in a concentrated, milky suspension – without dilution? Can you study the buildup of ”skin” on hot chocolate - with nanometer resolution?
Take the opportunity to see with your own eyes, ask experts and learn what is possible today. Lund Nano Lab, nCHREM and the Division of Physical Chemistry invites you to tour the facilities and meet the staff on 18 January 2012.
Please register beforehand by e-mailing Jonas Lundberg no later than 13 January, as the labs can welcome a maximum of 16 visitors divided on two groups.
10:45 Meeting at the main entrance of the Physics Department at Professorsgatan 1.
11:00 Short presentation about Lund Nano Lab and its facilities by Ivan Maximov or Peter Ramvall
11:15 Lab tour in Lund Nano Lab cleanroom facilities (2 groups of max 8 visitors).
Visiting route 1: Nano-process lab, level 1. Guide: Ivan Maximov.
The lab is divided into three parts (see below) and is used for fabrication and characterisation of nanostructures using different lithographic methods, deposition and etching.
Optical- and Nanoimprint lithography lab, including the following equipment: optical mask aligners, nanoimprint system, atomic force microscope.
Evaporation lab, including the following equipment: evaporation and magnetron sputtering machines, reactive ion etching systems, rapid thermal annealing furnaces and others.
Electron beam lithography (EBL) lab: EBL system and Focused Ion Beam/High Resolution Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) equipment.
Visiting route 2: Nano-epitaxy lab, level 2. Guide: Peter Ramvall.
The main lab function is epitaxial growth of III-V semiconductor nanostructures e.g. nanowires.
Epitaxial growth equipment (MOVPE Aixtron, Epiquip), X-ray diffraction system, atomic layer deposition system, SEMs.
12:00 Lunch at Moroten & Piskan, Kårhuset, Sölvegatan 22.
13.15 Meeting at Kemicentrum, Sölvegatan 39.
13.20 Short introduction to the nCHREM and Division of Physical Chemistry state-of-the-art facilities. Formation of two groups.
13.45 Visit of the facilities
Group 1 guided by Reine Wallenberg and Crispin Hetherington, nCHREM
nCHREM will show the sample preparation lab containing ultra-microtomes and equipment for preparation of of samples at cryogenic temperatures. The tour will also include a high reolution field emission SEM, a 120 kV cryo-TEM, and a 300 kV high resolution analytical TEM with SDD x-ray detectors and energy filtered imaging.
Group 2 guided by Stefan Ulvenlund and Anna Stenstam, Division of Physical Chemistry
14.20 Groups change visiting facilities
