We are certified according to
ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001.

Both Norwegian and international industry use SINTEF MiNaLab for production of key components.

Research areas

Radiation sensors

MiNaLab offers research, design and production of advanced silicon radiation sensors from single and double sided strip sensors, pixel sensors to silicon drift diodes. The group is a leading supplier for industrial and scientific applications.


MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical-System) based sensors, e.g. pressure sensors and accelerometers, are small, lightweight, cost efficient and suitable for high volume production.


SINTEF has 15 years of experience with modelling, design and fabrication. Our long experience will help you getting to the market faster.


Microsystems for medical and biological applications. We focus on nanotechnology enabled biosensors, sensors for in vivo measurements, and microfluidic technologies for Life Science research.

Optical MEMS

Micro-opto-electromechanical systems (MOEMS or optical MEMS), are systems with structures in the micro- to millimeter range whose purposes are to manipulate light. Today's MOEMS devices include waveguides, moving mirrors and diffractive gratings.
