Nanofabrication Centre

Micronova Nanofabrication Centre is listed as a National Research Infrastructure by the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture. The M2 cleanroom is an open access facility, and our process and measurement equipment available for use by other universities, research institutes and companies.

In total, the cleanroom covers an area of 2 600 m2. It is a clean bay – service chase type of cleanroom, with clean areas dedicated to various processing and analysis activities. The classification ranges from ISO4 in lithography and CMOS-sections, ISO5 in most processing areas to ISO6 in areas dedicated to measurements and gowning.

In addition to this main cleanroom there are laboratories with built-in cleanrooms for micropackaging and back-end processes as well as well-equipped and controlled labs for MOVPE, MBE and other thin film processes.

 The cleanroom was built in two phases. The first 1 100 m2 part ("M1") was commissioned in 1997 and rebuilt and refurbished in 2006. The extension part ("M2"), 1 500 m2, was commissioned in 2002.
