Laboratory for X-ray Nanoscience and Technologies
The Laboratory for X-ray Nanoscience and Technologies' (LXN) mission is to perform fundamental and applied research with focus on nanoscience by leveraging the synergies between advanced micro/nanofabrication and large-scale facilities, particularly the Swiss Light Source (SLS) and the SwissFEL. We develop and apply X-ray instrumentation (optics, detectors, diagnostics, etc.) for large-scale facilities using advanced micro and nanotechnology.
