The Division of Micro and Nanosystems (MST) is one of sixteen departments at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
The division is located at KTH's main camus at Valhallavägen in Stockholm, Sweden, and it is headed by prof. Göran Stemme. Within the division there is a group of senior researchers with different specializations as well as a number of doctoral students.
The division gives courses in the areas of Measurement technology and Microsystem technology.
The major research field of the division is Micro- and Nanoelectromechanical Systems (MEMS/NEMS), where micro- and nanofabrication techniques and materials are adapted to the making of small, low-cost, high-performance electromechanical, optoelectromechanical, RF/microwave as well as micro- and nano-fluidic devices.
We have several well-equipped in-house lab infrastructure, including:
- a polymer microsystems lab.
- an RF/THz lab.
- a photonics lab.
- a 3D nanostructuring lab (3D microprinting, laser machining).
- cell & microbiology facilities.
Much of the device fabrication takes place at the Electrum Lab and Albanova Nanofabrication Facility (www.myfab.se/KTHRISE.aspx). The Electrum Lab comprises 1300m² of class-100 cleanroom area for fabrication and characterization of microelectronics, photonics and microsystem devices. The Electrum lab is situated at KTH's campus in Kista, North-west of the city. Through the my-fab network the division also have acces to the other major cleanrooom labs in Sweden.
We further work in other major infrastructures.
- Scilifelab (www.scilifelab.se), which is the national hub for molecular biosciences.
- MedTechLabs (www.medtechlabs.se), which is the regional interdisciplinary centre for medical technology research.
- Biomedicum (ki.se/en/about/biomedicum-a-laboratory-of-the-future), which is the experimental research centre of the Karolinska Institute.
