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.
Welcome to Karlsruhe Nano Micro Facility (KNMF)

Please note that future proposals with insufficient information will be strictly rejected. We have adapted our guidelines as follows:
Assessment criteria are scientific value, relevance to KIT research, commitment of user to KNMF, and in the case of returning users, success of previous work, proper reporting and high-value publications arising from the previous proposals. The proposal must include sufficient information to allow the technology experts and reviewers to evaluate the feasibility and scientific excellence of the proposed work.KNMF User Guidelines
Thin Film Technologies (TFT) and Thin Film Characterization Methods (TFC) have been removed from the KNMF portfolio and cannot be requested for new proposals. All ongoing work on accepted proposals will be completed until mid 2019. We appreciate the contributions of Dr. Harald Leiste to KNMF in the past ten years. In case of particular importance of thin film development for you please contact Dr. Michael Stüber (Institute for Applied Materials - Applied Materials Physics). Please contact the User Office for any questions or support. Thank you.
