AMOLF explores novel fields of research. To this purpose, the researchers need unique advanced equipment, electronics, and software that often cannot be obtained commercially and that is specially designed and made by the technical departments. AMOLF has four of these specialized technical departments. Dedicated group technicians take care of the equipment in the labs and support the researchers.
Researchers and technicians from different departments work closely together on research projects. Together they optimize the experimental setup and the technical infrastructure for each new experiment.
The Amsterdam nanoCenter provides the facilities and expertise needed to produce structures and to characterize these at the microscale and nanoscale. Various lithographic processes are experimented with in the cleanroom. The Amsterdam nanoCenter was established by AMOLF, the University of Amsterdam and VU University Amsterdam. However, other institutes and companies also make use of it.
AMOLF’s research is carried out in four research laboratories that all contain equipments that are shared among research groups. All laboratories are open to external users.
Beside the Amsterdam nanoCenter the other laboratories are:
