Lund Nano Lab is a modern cleanroom facility, inagurated in January 2007. The cleanroom is used for the following purpose:
- epitaxial growth of III-V semiconductors
- processing and characterization of nanostructures
- fabrication of prototype devices
The Lund Nano Lab is devided into 2 parts: Nano-process lab (level 1) and Nano-epitaxy lab (level 2), which are connected via a cleanroom staircase. The Nano-process lab which is ISO 5 cleanroom environment, is used mostly for processing of nanostructures and includes different patterning techniques, such as electron beam lithography, nanoimprint, focused ion beams and others. The Nano-epitaxy lab (ISO 7 cleanroom standard) is used mostly for epitaxial growth by metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy and chemical beam epitaxy, but also for characterization of the grown structures. The Nano-epitaxy lab is integrated with the existing Berzelius laboratory into a common cleanroom area.

The Nano-process lab has about 150 sq.m cleanroom area which is devided into three parts: EBL-, Evaporation- and UV-lithography laboratories, see pictures below.

The Nano-epitaxy laboratory (about 110 sq. m) consists of 4 rooms on level 2, the epitaxial equipment include Aixtron AIX200 MOVPE machine and ThomasSwan CCS system for the nitride growth. The characterization equipment (FE-SEM and AFM) is conveniently placed close to the growth machines, see the pictures below.
