Kavli Institute, university of Delft - The Netherlands


The Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft is an intellectually inspiring environment of world-leading scientists that perform pioneering research to understand the nanoworld – from quantum physics to nanobiology.

This unique nano research facility is named after Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, the 17th century scientist from Delft. The Van Leeuwenhoek Laboratory (VLL) is one of the largest nanotechnology research facilities in Europe. It is unique because it is the only laboratory where a national research organization and a leading technology university join forces to create the extraordinary. This state-of-the-art facility was only possible because of decades of pioneering research by TNO and TU Delft.

  • Cleanrooms ISO 5-8
  • Vibration control down to VC-E  (EBPG, metrology)
  • Electromagnetic compatibility 10 nT
  • Temperature 20°C ± 0.25°C (EBPG, TEM)

In a total engineering approach Deerns was leading from the program of requirements up to the move-in and hook-up of the process and research equipment.
