About the Nanoquim Platform

Nanoquim Platform is a Cleanroom Laboratory located at the 4th floor of ICMAB: Cleanrooms are environments, typically used in manufacturing or scientific research, that have a low level of environmental pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles and chemical vapors. Cleanrooms are classified according to the international standards ISO and FED STD 209E depending on the maximum number of particles of a given diameter which are allowed in a standard air volume. Our cleanroom is classified as ISO 7 which corresponds to a Class 10,000 cleanroom according to FED STD 209E.

Materials nanostructuration is one of the strategic scientific domains of ICMAB being at present in deep expansion. Since the inauguration of the service in 2007, the Nanoquim Platform is a 200 m2 cleanroom with restrictive temperature and control of humidity with five distinct laboratories: Advanced Optical Lithography Lab., Characterization at the Nanoscale of Functional Materials Lab., Physico-Chemical Characterization and Nanofabrication Lab., Chemical Synthesis Lab., and a Highly Controllled Humidity Lab for non-aqueous solution deposition and growth of nanostructures. The last three laboratories are devoted to the nanostructuration of materials by chemical routes, which constitutes the most distinctive feature of the Nanoquim Platform.

About 40 different scientific equipment are placed in this facility comprising equipment for the determination of physico-chemical properties of solutions, solution deposition and nanoestructuration equipment, nanomaterial growth equipment, thin film caracterization equipment, nanoscale characterization equipment, physico-chemical selective etching systems for metals, oxides and polymers, and electrical contact and advanced optical lithography equipment.
