PowerMEMS 2010


The 10th International Workshop on Micro and Nanotechnology for Power Generation and Energy Conversion Applications

Laser interference lithography

Two important breakthroughs by European researchers have brought an emerging nano-scale fabrication technology out of the lab and into the real world. The technique promises lower cost production of nano-devices at higher resolutions.

13th International Conference on Metrology and Properties of Engineering Surfaces


This conference focuses on the progress made in surface metrology, surface characterisation instrumentation and properties of engineering surfaces.

Summer School in Microrobotics and Self-Assembly for Hybrid MEMS


This Summer School is a real opportunity to go into the microworld and discover innovative approaches and tools.

Microsys 2010, the Micro- and Nanotechnology Fair, will take place in Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre this September.

Tough T-shirt?

A cotton t-shirt reinforced with boron carbide is tough and hard but nonetheless elastic. These properties indicate future promise, but this material is not yet bulletproof.

Summer School in micro mechanical system design & manufacture


Micromechanical components play an increasing role in micro systems. The use of metals, polymers and ceramics for miniature components requires new product development methods as well as manufacturing technologies, where product dimensions may range from micrometre to millimetre.

Polymer actuator could be artificial muscle

French scientists have designed an electronic conducting polymer actuator that can extend and contract linearly rather than bending. The fibres could eventually be used to develop artificial muscles.
