KNMF unifies more than 24 technology clusters and 39 scientists managing three laboratories. KNMF Laboratory for Micro- and Nanostructuring combines an impressive set of constructive bottom up and ablative top down structuring and replication technologies. KNMF Laboratory for Microscopy and Spectroscopy stimulates the current and future trends for high energy microscopy and spectroscopy. KNMF Laboratory for Synchrotron Characterisation offers novel possiblites for high energy characterisation in the nanometre wavelength range. Access to KNMF installations requires the submission of proposals via the online proposal submission system.
