One way for the production of high-performance devices is through molecular deposition or through molecular growth on a substrate. Both, are advanced techniques that result in nanostructured materials composed by a layer or multiple layers of a target material.
Nanoquim Platform is a 10,000 class Clean Room equiped with near 30 instruments. The Facility belongs to the ICMAB's Scientific & Technical Services
Five laboratories form this 10000 class clean room:
Advanced Optical Lithography Lab., Characterization at the Nanoscale of Functional Materials Lab., Physico-Chemical Characterization and Nanofabrication Lab., Chemical Synthesis Lab., and a Highly Controllled Humidity Lab. for non-aqueous solution deposition and growth of nanostructures; the last three laboratories compose the so-called Nanoquim Laboratory which is devoted to the nanostructuration of materials by chemical routes, which constitutes the most distinctive feature of the Nanostructuration Platform.
About 40 different scientific equipments are planned to be placed in this facility comprising equipment for the determination of physico-chemical properties of solutions, solution deposition and nanoestructuration equipment, nano-material growth equipment, thin film caracterization equipment, nanoscale characterization equipment, physico-chemical selective etching systems for metals, oxides and polymers, and electrical contact and advanced optical lithography equipment. Currently, the service has over 30 equipments available.
Nanoquim Platform is a Clean Room Laboratory located at the 4th floor of the ICMAB Institute that belongs to CSIC.
Cleanrooms are environments, typically used in manufacturing or scientific research, that have a low level of environmental pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles and chemical vapors. Cleanrooms are classified according to the international standards ISO and FED STD 209E depending on the maximum number of particles of a given diameter which are allowed in a standard air volume. Our cleanroom is classified as ISO 7 which corresponds to a Class 10,000 cleanroom according to FED STD 209E.
Materials nanostructuration is one of the strategic scientific domains of ICMAB being at present in deep expansion. Since the inauguration of the Service in 2007, the Nanoquim Platform is about 200 m2 clean room laboratories with restrictive temperature and control of humidity that is part of the Nanotechnology Unit of ICMAB.
