is an open access platform, granted by the EU to carry out projects for multidisciplinary
research at the nano-scale extending from synthesis to nano-characterization to
theory and numerical simulation.
infrastructures specialized on growth, nano-lithography, nano-characterization,
theory and simulation and fine-analysis are integrated in a multi-site
combination to develop frontier research on methods for reproducible
nanoscience research and to enable European and international researchers from
diverse disciplines to carry out advanced proposals impacting science and
5 European institutions DESY NanoLab develops an “Advanced Nano-Object Transfer
and Positioning” protocol that permits an easy transfer and re-location of
selected small objects from different nanoscience instruments to nano-focused
X-ray beamlines at the Synchrotrons ESRF, SOLEIL and PETRA III at DESY in
a transnational access can be submitted through the NFFA portal (www.nffa.eu/) to apply for all NFFA-Europe
methods and instruments. Industry is especially encouraged to submit a proposal
for free NFFA access.
