The CEITEC Nano Research Infrastructure provides complex equipment, expertise and methods for nanotechnology and advanced materials R&D. The CEITEC Nano facilities for nanofabrication, nanocharacterization, structural analysis and X-ray tomography enable the carrying out of complete fabrication of nanostructures and nanodevices and their characterization down to the sub-nanometre level in an entirely clean environment.
The nanofabrication laboratory is located in an ISO class 5 (US 100) cleanroom with an area of 356 m² and nanocharacterization laboratory is located in an ISO class 8 (US FS 100,000) cleanroom with an area of 1,337 m². The structural analysis laboratory occupies a further 300 m² of ISO class 8 (US FS 100,000) cleanroom.
We are a single-sited, flexible, multi-material, multipurpose user facility providing services for internal and external users from academia and industry. We typically serve physics, material science and electronics research; however, bio-related and medical research is also possible and welcome. The users typically access the infrastructure via self-service, open access model. To a limited degree we are also capable of providing complete services (nanofabrication, nano-characterization, data analysis) in the field of nano-related R&D.
CEITEC Nano is the Czech Republic’s largest cleanroom nanocentre, acknowledged by the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Education of the Czech Republic as Large Infrastructure for Research, Experimental Development and Innovation.
