The Karlsruhe Nano Micro Facility (KNMF) offers access to a uniquely complete set of fabrication and characterization technologies. External users from academia and industry, either national or international, can apply for open and – if the results are published – free access. Annual deadlines for the submission of proposals are January 15 and June 15. Applications for urgent and commercial projects can be submitted at any time (proposal submission). The highly qualified KNMF staff will guide users through the relevant processes and techniques to address their processing goals and characterization needs. KNMF encourages the early discussion of planned projects and scientific goals and is open for long-term collaborations.
Limitations in KNMF operation due to the Corona virus
The operation of KNMF is currently inhibited by measures to slow the spread of the Corona virus. Many of our staff are working from home and some technologies are not in operation. Currently no external guests are allowed on the KIT campus. This disruption is expected to continue until at least 19th April. Up to date information on the Corona virus and the current situation at KIT can be found on www.kit.edu.
In case of questions on your planned work or ideas for a new proposal, please use email to contact the user office or your scientifc host and we will respond as soon as possible.
