Prof. Dr. Ivan Maximov presents the Lund Nano Lab in an ICN2 Seminar

Prof. Dr. Ivan Maximov, coordinator of the Lund Nano Lab at Lund University, explained in an ICN2 Seminar some of the main facilities and areas of research they promote in a very dynamic region of Sweden. He was invited by the invited by the Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures group.

The Nanometer Structure Consortium, founded in 1988, supports and coordinates activities within nanoscience and nanotechnology at Lund University. Prof. Dr. Ivan Maximov coordinates the Lund Nano Lab, which since 2007 is part of this Consortium, with the objective of processing and manufacturing nanometer sized structures. In a Seminar at ICN2 held in February 18th, invited by the Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures group led by Prof. Dr. Clivia Sotomayor, he explained some of the main facilities and areas of research they promote in a very dynamic region of Sweden. Dr. Claudia Delgado introduced the speaker.

The Lund Nano Lab has developed a high expertise in nanowires, including a Nanowire growth study recently published in Science, although its activity covers a wide range of research areas: Materials Science; Quantum Physics; Nanoelectronics & Nanophotonics; Nanoenergy; Nanobiology and Nanoneuroscience; and, Nanosafety. The Materials Science and Synthesis is a central knowledge area which interacts with the rest of them. Their facilities offer a 620 m2 world class cleanroom which houses about 180 users, including 7 companies.

The research undergone at Lund Nano Lab has an important academic component, managing over 100 students every year. It also offers services and cooperates with companies, some of them spin offs based on research led from the University of Lund, which have full access to the equipment. After explaining some details about the main research lines developed at Lund Nano Lab, Prof. Dr. Ivan Maximov concluded his talk with a video-visit to the cleanroom facilities. By the way, they are hiring a labmanager!
