Education and Training

Education & training are important functions provided by the Nanofabrication Laboratory. In its simplest form, hands-on training on the use of process tools is given by the staff. Classroom instruction is also given first in the form of The Cleanroom Introduction Course, which is a pre-requisite for all those who wish to access to Laboratory as a user. This covers such areas as safety, handling chemicals, proper cleanroom behaviour, and specific information concerning the Nanofabrication Laboratory. The course is offered on a monthly basis, and at additional times if the demand is sufficient.
A graduate course in micro and nano processing technologies is also offered by the Laboratory. This gives a theoretical introduction to the common processes used in a cleanroom environment.
With its considerable competence and experience in education, courses can be customized to suit any partner’s needs or interests.

Cleanroom Introduction Course

You need the "Introduction course" to be able to enter the cleanroom and to get access to the booking system. You also need a "driving licence" to be able to book a particular tool. The course is given typically once per month during autumn and spring semester.There is a fee for the course, contact us for detailed information about the actual rate for you. Together with the one-day introduction course, you are also obliged to participate in Wet-bench training and Risk Assessment training before you are actually allowed to work in the cleanroom on your own. Then you will also need a "Licence tool" to be able to use and book those particular tools you might need for Your research. We will also offer you a discussion with our process specialists about your actual project in the lab at an individual start-up meeting. After the course, we will supply you with some necessary items such a lab shoes and tool box.

There should also be a funding project identified and registered from you that will pay the costs for your activities in the cleanroom.
