ICMAB is one of the host institutions of the NFFA-Europe project for the synthesis and characterisation at the nanoscale across Europe, which started in 2015 and will last until the end of 2018.
Since the begining of the project, after five calls, ICMAB has participated in the following way:
Apart from ICMAB, the National Microelectronics Center (CNM), also from CSIC, hosts NFFA-Europe users. We jointly offer a comprehensive set of top-down and bottom-up technological resources of nano relevance encompassing material growth, pattern definition and transfer, ancillary techniques for micro-nanodevice fabrication, and structural and functional characterization. Nanomaterials and nanofabrication are our core business and we have already established a collaboration with nearby synchrotron ALBA.
In the UAB Campus, five nanoscience and nanotechnology institutions are taking part in this project, among them being the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM, CSIC), the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB, CSIC), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), the UAB Research Park (PRUAB) and the Catalan Institute for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2).
Don't miss the opportunity to get free access to the widest range of tools for research at the nanoscale: growth, nano-lithography, nano-characterization, theory and simulation and fine-analysis with synchrotron, FEL and neutron radiation sources.
