Established and interim research infrastructures
KTH has established and interim research infrastructures. The established facilities are national infrastructures, accessible to various stakeholders and users. The interim facilities are primarily used by KTH.
KTH's established research infrastructures are strategic, accessible to many users and are used frequently. They have a long-term plan for organisation, quality assessment and funding as well as for societal impact.
The interim research infrastructures can become established infrastructures following further assessment.
Established research infrastructures
There are eleven established research infrastructures at KTH. These are:
Advance Light Microscope Laboratory (ALM)
The Advanced Light Microscopy (ALM) Laboratory is a KTH research infrastructure at Science for Life Laboratory. ALM provide access and user support in advanced light microscopy for nanoscale biological visualization. The laboratory is one of the nodes in the national microscopy infrastructure and also a member of the european infrastructure EuroBioimaging. .
Director: Hjalmar Brismar
The research infrastructure has a so called cleanroom of 1300 square metres and other facilities for nano- and micro fabrication, available for education, research and development, prototyping and development. The laboratory is led by KTH and RISE and is a partner node of MyFab.
Director: Nils Nordell
The Hultgren Laboratory houses a number of instruments for material characterization, which plays an important role in material development, such as solid state metallic, ceramic and polymer based materials.
Director: Peter Hedström
Jonasson Centre of Medical Imaging
The research infrastructure strive to ensure that healthcare, technology and research in the region will become world-leading in the field of image function. The centre provides a research collaboration platform for KTH, KI and Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset in medical technology.
Director: Örjan Smedby
The NanoLab is an open multi-user facility that offers a wide range of equipment and expertise in exploratory micro- and nanofabrication, and most types of scanning probe microscopy, run jointly by KTH and SU at the AlbaNova University Center.
Director: Vladislav Korenivski
NGI National Genomics Infrastructure
The National Genomics Infrastructure provides access to technology and computational tools for massively parallel/next generation DNA sequencing, genotyping and associated bioinformatics support. The platform is hosted at Science for Life Laboratory.
Director: Joakim Lundeberg
The Odqvist Laboratory for Experimental Mechanics offers advanced measurement methods and experimental facilities covering most aspects of Engineering Mechanics. There are four labs -Fluid Physics, Sound and Vibration research, Lightweight structures and Solid Mechanics.
Director: Stefan Hallström
The research infrastructure PDC provides leading high performance computing (HPC) services (e.g. supercomputing, data storage resources, software for simulation and modelling) used for academic and business research in Sweden via SNIC and European researchers via PRACE.
Vice Director: Gert Svensson
Sustainable Power Laboratory
The research infrastructure consists of nine different facilities for research in technologies for the transition to a decarbonized energy system with radically reduced environmental impact. Research is carried on all levels, from materials characterization to power system dynamics.
Director: Nicholas Honeth
The language bank for Speech (Språkbanken Tal)
The research infrastructure is one of three divisions of the National Language bank (Text, Tal, Sam). The research at Språkbanken Tal at KTH focuses on speech technologies.
Director: Jens Edlund
Visualization studio VIC
The research infrastructure has state-of-the-art technologies for visualization of complex data over many platforms and cutting-edge interaction including gesture- and speech-based control, haptic feedback, eye tracking, and immersive augmented and virtual reality environments.
Director: Björn Thuresson
Interim research infrastructures
KTH has four interim research infrastructures. These are:
Fusion reactor EXTRAP T2R
The main application of the research infrastructure EXTRAP T2R plasma device is research on magnetic confinement fusion. R&D for fusion reactors aim at an environmentally acceptable and commercially attractive energy source with an almost infinite supply of fuel.
Director: Per Brunsell
KTH Laser Lab
The research infrastructure comprises of well-established and well-equipped labs which perform research in quantum electronics, material science and expanding range of cross-disciplinary applications using unique tools and methods enabled by coherent light sources.
Director: Valdas Pasiskevicius
2MILab mission is to provide a platform for molecular understanding and chemical engineering of interfaces and interfacial processes to control material properties
Director: Matthew Fielden
Laboratory of Civil and Architectural Engineering (BYV Lab)
Director: Stefan Trillkott
