Centres at the Department of Microtchnology and Nanoscience

MC2 is home of and partner in a number of centers - some of them are run in collaboration with other departments at Chalmers, others are run in collaboration with other universities.


Our vision is to establish an internationally visible and competitive Swedish hub for excellent 2D materials research and technological innovation. We bring together key players from Swedish industry and academic research to establish close, multi-disciplinary and dynamic collaboration.


The centre is a joint venture between Chalmers University of Technology, Lund University, Acconeer, Axis Communications, Codasip, Ericsson, Global Foundries, Saab and Qamcom. With expertise from all levels in semiconductor system design, the center will conduct research and offer education to pave the way for a new generation of chip designers and make Sweden a strong player in the field.


FORCE is a Chalmers-based centre with the purpose of bringing together all research relevant to optical fiber communication. This is cross-disciplinary and currently involves people from three departments and bridges the whole chain from components to systems and analysis to experiments.


Welcome to the Wireless Infrastructure Technology Centre at Chalmers (WiTECH), where cutting-edge research meets collaborative innovation to shape the future of wireless communication and semiconductor technologies. In an era defined by connectivity and sustainability, WiTECH stands as a beacon of progress, driving forward the development of robust and reliable wireless communication and sensor systems. Supported by Vinnova funding (2024-2028), WiTECH is hosted by the Department of Electrical Engineering in close collaboration with the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience at Chalmers University.

Graphene Centre at Chalmers

The Graphene Centre gathers all research at Chalmers on atomically thin 2D materials (including graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, van der Waals heterostructures and related materials). It provides a forum for 2D material researchers to exchange ideas, to identify synergy effects, to build new and strengthen already existing collaborations within Chalmers, and finally to coordinate joint applications for new grants.


META-PIX is a competence center aiming to establish an internationally leading environment for research and education in ‘integrated meta-photonics’, with applications ranging from optical connections in data centers to quantum simulations.

The world is on the verge of a quantum technology revolution, with extremely powerful computers, intercept-proof communications and hyper-sensitive measuring instruments in sight. Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology is a 12 year SEK 1 billion research effort that aims to take Sweden to the forefront of this very rapidly expanding area of technology. Through an extensive research programme, we aim at developing and securing Swedish expertise within the main areas of quantum technology: quantum computing and simulation, quantum communications and quantum sensing. Our main project is to develop a quantum computer that can solve problems far beyond the reach of the best conventional supercomputers.
