FinnLight Infrastructure

FinnLight infrastructure

The development of Photonics technologies is a multi-level process that requires advanced design and fabrication methods, testing and integration  capabilities, as well as extensive characterization techniques. FinnLight is a platfrom of advanced infrastructurewith centralized and coordinated operation offering a wide range of services for the fabrication, characterization, and integration of photonics and light-based technologies.  FinnLigth is part of the national roadmap for research infrastructures (FIRI) established by the Academy of Finland. Read more about FinnLight concept. 

Researchers, commercial users and companies can benefit from FinnLight research and technology development capabilities within the framework of collaboration projects or through direct contracting. FinnLight offers services performed by dedicated and competent staff, open-access to the instrumentation, tailored researcher training, scientific consultation, or equipment rental.
