The new cleanroom in the basement of the LIT Open Innovation Center (financed by BMBWF, JKU and the Country of Upper Austria) is designed for the manufacturing of scientific samples for fundamental research as well as the fabrication of prototype devices and will be shared by different institutes and departments (physics, chemistry, mechatronics, informatics).

The application areas are quantum technologies, especially novel semiconductor-based light sources for secure data transfer by quantum key distribution, silicon-based photonics with potential applications in data transfer (data-centers), sensor technology, barely perceptible electronics (e.g. for medical applications), ultra light photovoltaics etc.

The cleanroom environment allows a dramatic reduction in the number of particles, which is highly important for the fabrication of devices in the micro- and nanometer range.
