Organisation name: Danmarks Tekniske Universitet
DTU, participating with its Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology, DTU Nanotech, represents a cross-disciplinary research environment where micro- and nanotechnology are applied to a wide range of scientific disciplines, e.g. mechanics, optics, chemistry, medical technologies, and biotechnology. The majority of our scientific projects are conducted in collaboration with Danish and European industry. DTU offers a comprehensive course plan with theoretical and experimental courses providing training of students in micro- and nanotechnology. DTU has a long track record on IPR handling and administrative support to national and European projects. DTU has generated 10 start-up and spin-off companies. DTU has access to a state-of-the-art clean room, chemical laboratories, and optical laboratories. In particular, fabrication tools for silicon and polymer materials, and equipment for spatially and spectrally resolved Reflectance and Transmittance measurements are available.
The participating research group of Professor Anders Kristensen provides expertise in electron beam- and nanoimprint lithography for fabrication of silicon, silica and polymer prototype devices. The research group has extensive experience in design, fabrication and characterisation of polymer photonic crystal devices and plasmonic structural colors, developed to TRL5 within EC FP7 FoF PLAST4FUTURE. Furthermore, they initiated research on MEMS based flexible silicon NIL-stamps and compact NIL tools, which is now being commercialized by the partner NILT.
