'Microparts’ Interest Group Workshop


Recent advances in modern manufacturing techniques has made it possible to manufacture small and complex components to extremely high accuracies. In direct response to the extreme demands of quality assurance for the measurement of size, form and position of microsystem parts, extensive research is being carried out in the area of geometrical measurement on the micro-scale.

Nanostructures in Metal Moving Liquid Uphill

Femtosecond laser ablation is applied to change the surface structure of metals, such that it lifts liquid by capillary action at a speed that would make nature envious.

Integrating optical sensing into lab-on-a-chip systems

A combination of waveguides and microfluidics is easily achieved through femtosecond-laser micromachining.

Multipurpose integrated active contact lenses

Electronics, sensors, and communication capabilities will all be embedded in future contact lenses, presenting new opportunities in applications ranging from medicine to virtual reality.

4M MicroFluidics Division


The next and last divisional meeting (microfluidic division) will be held in Karlsruhe following the 4M GC meeting.

4M Metals Division


The main task of this meeting will be to discuss our deliverable D7.8, the aim of which is the identification of successful cooperation strategies between research institutes whereby it should also reflect the current state of the art regarding this issue. During the divisional meeting we will discuss the outcome of the questionnaire, which is currently distributed amongst all 4M partners addressing their personal cooperation strategies, and to identify conclusions for the final report of this deliverable.

4M Polymer Processing division


This final meeting of the Polymer Processing Divison will be hosted by CEA at the Cadarache chateau in France.

For full details of the agenda please contact Andreas Schoth.
