Realize your nano vision

SSF Research Infrastructure Fellows

Syftet med programmet Research Infrastructure Fellows 2, RIF 2, är att bidra till karriärvägar för nyckelpersoner som arbetar med utveckling och drift av forskningsinfrastruktur vid svenska universitet inom SSF:s verksamhetsområden: naturvetenskap, medicin och teknik.

Programmet RIF utlystes för första gången 2014 och nu får ytterligare sju projekt 15 miljoner kronor vardera under en femårsperiod.

En av dessa är KTHs Per-Erik Hellström med projektet "Heterogen integration med CMOS i KTHs Electrumlaboratoriet" För mer info se

A year later than originally planned for, the third Nordic Nanolab User Meeting (NNUM) took place at Chalmers on May 5-6. Nearly 300 users of Nordic universities' nanofabrication laboratories had the opportunity to meet, take part in lectures and tutorials, and discuss research ideas and results with each other.

Enligt KTH-professorn Mikael Östling har Sverige en stark kompetens – både inom näringslivet, men framför allt inom akademin. Som extra krydda har landet även en stark industritradition. Så, frågan är: varför skulle Sverige inte kunna vara en stark spelare inom några specialområden i halvledarindustrin?

Mikael Östling är professor och prorektor på Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan – vi tar en pratstund om bland annat svensk utbildning och kiselkarbid.


Expert: EU:s halvledarsatsning "en tydlig prioritering”

The Electrum Laboratory is on the KTH campus in Kista. It has been serving both higher education and industry with first class knowledge and technology for 35 years. Electrum Lab Director Nils Nordell greets us and explains that these successes are the fruits of the overlap area between researchers and companies.

Myfab KTH

Electrum Laboratory and Albanova Nanofabrication Facility are the two laboratories operated within the KTH node of Myfab – the Swedish research infrastructure for micro- and nanofabrication.

In Kista the Electrum Laboratory with a 1300 m2 cleanroom area and 1500 m2 additional laboratories is outstanding for fabrication and characterization in the nano and micro scale, supporting the whole chain from education, research and development, to prototyping and production.

At KTH Campus the Albanova Nanofabrication Facility has a 285 m2 cleanroom and 60 m2 additional laboratories. With focus on direct writing technology, the Albanova Nanolab is a flexible resource for basic research requiring nanofabrication and nanocharacterization with a wide variety of materials and substrate.

Both the laboratories maintain exciting meeting places for students, researchers, and entrepreneurs in different disciplines, ranging from fundamental science to mature technology. In this environment we offer you the chance to realize your ideas.See also our quality policy.


Our resources are available at open access:
-   A fully equipped cleanroom with complete and highly qualitative process lines for device research and manufacturing.
- A flexible cleanroom environment for materials and device oriented research and development.
-   World class characterization laboratories, providing an integrated in-depth understanding of materials, structures, and devices by combining relevant analysis techniques from our palette.
-   Sophisticated software for advanced calculations, simulation and design.


Our highly skilled staff is available for your projects
-   Process and development services
-   Commissioned research and development.
-   Prototyping and small scale production
-   Courses in process technology, characterization and cleanroom infrastructure.

Laboratory space

You may also rent detached laboratory space for your own specialized tools, and simultaneously gain access to our full range of services.
As part of the Myfab network access is offered to all the equipment within the network.


The Electrum Laboratory is operated in close collaboration with RISE, Sweden’s research institute and innovation partner.

As part of the Myfab network, access is offered to all the equipment at the nodes, i.e. Chalmers, Uppsala and Lund Universities.

KTH and RISE, together with Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Latvia are partners in the EU-project CAMART2, strengthening innovation and infrastructure in the fields of materials physics and nano science in the Baltic Sea region.


ISO 9001:2015 Quality standard

ISO 14001:2015 Environmental standard

The Electrum Laboratory is certified according to the international ISO 9001:2015 Quality Standard. The Electrum Laboratory is part of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) which is certified according to the international ISO 14001 Environmental Standard.
