The Nanolab is equipped with all facilities allowing the in-situ preparation and characterisation of all our complex samples. The list of our equipment is therefore split up into preparation techniques (such as 9-cell Kentax evaporator, Kentax metal evaporator as well as home-made molecular evaporators, molecular spray and pulse valves) and analysing techniques (as X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS), Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), low-energy electron diffraction (LEED) and low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy (LT-STM)).

The Nanolab UHV system, consisting of five UHV chamber, fast entry load-lock and installation of the portable vacuum suitcase. This allows the transfer of the samples between Nanolab, Nanojuntion laboratory of prof. Thomas Jung group at Paul Scherrer Institute as well as the XMCD endstation of the SIM beamline at the Swiss Light Source without braking the vacuum.
