The MESA+NanoLab facilities play a
crucial role in the MESA+ research programs as well as in the commercialization
The MESA+ research programs are directly related to the national research
program NanoNed. In NanoNed the importance of a national facility has been
acknowledged, and a major part of the effort and the accompanying budget is
dedicated to NanoLab NL.
NanoLab NL has the aim to build up,
maintain and provide a coherent and accessible high-level, state-of-the-art
infrastructure for nanotechnological research and innovation in the
Netherlands. NanoLab NL is about national cohesion in infrastructure, access,
and tariff structure.
MESA+ is proud to be part of the
national consortium NanoLab NL.
MESA+ has a 1250 m2 state-of-the-art NanoLab which consists
of three closely intertwined units: the cleanroom, analysis facilities and the
Research on the
nanometre scale needs a laboratory with extreme specifications, the NanoLab is
constructed to meet such high standards
so any influencing effects from the environment, such as vibration and
electromagnetic disturbances, are virtually non-existent.
The environmental conditions inside the building, such as temperature,
humidity and the influence of light are extremely stable.
MESA+ NanoLab plays a central part in
collaborations with industry. MESA+ has a strong relationship with industry,
both through joint research projects with the larger multinational companies,
and through a cooperation policy focused on small and medium- sized
