Providing an open-access infrastructure for R&D in nanotechnology

NanoLabNL is a Dutch national facility for nanotechnology research. Since 2004 we have been offering the use of our facilities and expertise to universities, research institutes, start-ups and industry on 5 locations in the Netherlands (Twente, Delft, Eindhoven, Groningen and Amsterdam).

The NanoLabNL facilities are an important link in the innovation process from basic idea to product. In this role NanoLabNL supports fundamental research, process and product development and, to some extent, small-scale production.

How to use our facilities?

Given the broad range of facilities and expertise within NanoLabNL, there is no single guideline for access and use, but the following options are possible:

  • Direct access to our facilities with your own operator (once authorised after instruction/training)
  • Direct access with a dedicated operator from NanoLabNL / another company
  • Use of facilities within research projects

It is possible to use our equipment for short-, mid- and long-term research projects. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your  technological issues and /or  the available options for the facilities you are interested in.

Basic and expert technologies
Each of the NanoLab NL locations offers a range of basic and expert technologies. The basic technologies provide a general infrastructure suitable for common nanofabrication activities with a geographical barrier as low as possible. The expert technologies are unique facilities and/or expertise you aren't likely to find anywhere else in the country.
