Welcome to Myfab Uppsala!

Myfab is the Swedish research infrastructure for microtechnology, nanoscience and materials research. In addition to Myfab Uppsala, other sites are located at KTH (Stockholm), Chalmers (Gothenburg) and Lund University. We provide a distributed open user facility for university and industry personnel active in research or development in diverse fields like basic materials science, thin film technology, energy generation and sustainability, emerging electronics, microsystems, nanotechnology and biotechnology.

To browse the equipment list, please go to Tools / All tools in the menu bar above.
A list of additional tools within the Ångström Laboratory (not part of Myfab Uppsala) is available at http://lims.eqp.angstrom.uu.se/default.aspx.

Examples of materials that can be synthesized in the lab are available here. Note that the list is not exhaustive.

For more information about the laboratory, available tools and processes, please contact msl@angstrom.uu.se.

User Access

The procedure for obtaining laboratory access consists of the following three steps:

  1. Approval from responsible supervisor must be reported to Myfab-U (msl@angstrom.uu.se).
  2. The on-line application form ("user access") must becompleted and submitted.
  3. Only if steps 1 & 2 have been fulfilled: The compulsory user introduction seminar must be attended.

If an extended (LithoChem) access is requested this must be expressed in the supervisor approval (1) and the additional chemical safety seminar must be attended (3).

The seminars will be given in the Myfab-U conference room every second week (usually Tuesday), with breaks for summer and Christmas / New Year, starting at 9:00 (general user introduction – compulsory to all users) and 13:00 (chemical safety – compulsory for LithoChem access).

2024 spring schedule (preliminary):

January     16 + 30
February   13 + 27
March       12 + 26
April            9 +23
May             7 + 21
June             4

The lab access is no more than a permission to enter the cleanroom. In order to get access to a specific tool, one or several training sessions should be scheduled with the tool responsible engineer (see equipment list). When the operators licence has been granted the user is free to book and use the equipment.

Previous users, returning after a period of absence / inactivity, should not fill in the application form as they are already registered in the LIMS system and only have to be reactivated. However, if the inactivity period exceeds 12 months, all introductions (seminars / operator training) must be repeated.
