NTNU NanoLab is one of 4 cleanrooms within "The Norwegian Micro- and Nanofabrication Facility", NorFab. The facility is open for students and scientists at NTNU, as well as external researchers.

The infrastructure is run by a staff of 9 engineers and operated according to hands-on principles. NTNU NanoLab has 700 m2 cleanroom facilities with cleanliness ranging from ISO7 to ISO5 and vibration reduced zones at VCF-level. The cleanroom is also built according to GMO laboratory class 2 requirements.

The Micro- and Nanoscale Design Laboratory addresses functional materials from the nano- to the mesoscale. The lab has various atomic layer deposition tools with in situ characterization capabilities to fabricate and characterize catalytic layers. Furthermore the lab have chemical mechanical polishing and 3D printing options to prototype various components of the fuel cell.
