European Microkelvin Platform

The European Microkelvin Platform (EMP) is a consortium of 17 partners which have an extensive portfolio of capacities and expertise in ultralow temperature physics. The EMP has been established in 2014 and it provides access to the milli- and microkelvin temperature regime. Since the lowest accessible temperatures are continuously falling, we also lay considerable weight on improving and upgrading our infrastructure. These advances allow us, and our users from across Europe, to study new phenomena, thereby generating new knowledge, applications and commercial opportunities. We have a particular interest in the benefits of ultralow temperature physics for driving forward the inter-related areas of quantum materials, nanoscience, and quantum technology. The activities of the EMP hold enormous potential for innovation.
If we raised your interest, you can find detailed information on the available facilities, how to submit your application and how to contact us. In case of questions, do not hesitate to contact our Project Manager (
If you want to receive EMP news on a regular basis, you can follow us on twitter.
