Myfab Lund information meeting with lab tour

Welcome to an information meeting about Lund Nano Lab (LNL) – what is it, what does it offer and how can you access it? We will also tell you about the plans and process of building the new Nano Lab at Science Village, a cutting-edge semiconductor nanofabrication facility near MAX IV and ESS.

Funding for "Greening" Myfab Lund

Sarah McKibbin gets funding for "Greening" Myfab Lund

Optimise lab routines, minimise unnecessary consumption of lab consumables, recycle when possible, and improve user behaviour. That’s some of the improvements that can make the Lund Nano Lab greener, according to the project that Sarah McKibbin gets funding for, from the Lund University Sustainability Fund.

New Wallenberg Scholars at Myfab Lund

Vanya Darakchieva, Professor of Semiconductor Materials, and Heiner Linke, Professor of Nanophysics, have been named Wallenberg Scholars, a programme funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation that supports excellent basic research, primarily in medicine, technology, and natural sciences. In addition, three current Wallenberg Scholars in our research environment receive grants: Anne L’Huillier, Kimberly Dick Thelander, and Stephanie Reimann. 

The five-year grant amounts to SEK 18 million each for researchers in theoretical subjects and up to SEK 20 million each for experimental subjects. As Nobel Prize laureate, Anne L’Huillier receives a grant of SEK 40 million. 

Strengthening Swedish semiconductor capability

Semiconductors – the “brains” behind electronic products and systems. Whether mobile phones, automotive, energy, home appliances, or artificial intelligence, these components (“chips”) play a key role. At the same time, Asian countries account for more than half of the world’s semiconductor chip production. Swedish semiconductor capability is now to be strengthened by Lund University together with Chalmers and KTH



WISE Materials Fabrication Platform for sustainable materials research

WISE, the Wallenberg Initiative Materials Science for Sustainability, is the largest-ever investment in materials science in Sweden and is financed by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. WISE is now investing 500 million SEK (45 million Euros) for equipment and infrastructure at seven universities in Sweden to establish a national infrastructure for research into sustainable materials. 44 million SEK are dedicated to Myfab Lund and a further 21 MSEK to KTH.

Myfab Lund aiming for Science Village

Transitioning to the next level, Myfab Lund is now also building a new, state-of-the-art laboratory right next to the exclusive research facilities ESS and MAX IV, in Lund’s Science Village. Not only will it pave the way for the establishment of Lund University in the emerging district – Nanolab Science Village will also offer researchers unique opportunities to provide humanity with new knowledge for a sustainable civilization.
