Otaniemi research infrastructure for micro- and nanotechnologies (OtaNano) is a national research infrastructure (RI) focusing on competitive research in nanoscience and -technology, and in quantum technologies. It offers a wide variety of fabrication processes and equipment for micro- and nanostructures. The facilities cover a comprehensive range of imaging and characterisation equipment, including electron microscopy, nanomicroscopy and x-ray scattering devices. Key activities within the research infrastructure include ultra-low-temperature conductivity and high-frequency measurements.
OtaNano is a top-level learning environment for young researchers and an international centre for scientific research. The facilities are important for scientists as well as for high-tech companies working with micro- and nanotechnology applications. The RI is a national platform to develop innovative enabling technologies and apply them to practical micro- and nano-systems.
OtaNano enjoys a rare position among Finnish research infrastructures for having over twenty years of international infrastructure co-operation through European large-scale infrastructure projects. OtaNano is is an open access RI, operated by Aalto University and VTT, and available for academic and commercial users internationally.
