DTU Danchip


The core of DTU Nanolab's services is to make it possible for our customers to develop new technology and new products based on top-down micro- and nanotechnology. The physical outputs of this process are small chips, with feature sizes down to a few nanometers. When manufacturing devices in this order of magnitude, the presence of dust particles proves to be very critical, hence cleanrooms are an absolute necessity.

The cleanroom facility at DTU Nanolab's consists of 1350 m² total laboratory area with a mixture of different classes of cleanroom space, hosting a large range of activities within micro- and nanotechnology.

Simply put, the core technologies of DTU Nanolab are two-fold, which is combinations can create 3-dimensional structures with a given functionality. One key process is to create thin films with a thickness from a few nanometers to many micrometers. The other is etching holes in the film after a selective pattern, using very advanced etching techniques. These techniques have been adapted to the multi-disciplinary research and pilot-production environment, which has evolved since 1993 with special focus on topics like MEMS, optical communication, µ-fluidics, and biochemical applications.
