Oxford Instruments and IEMN co-hosting workshop on MEMS and NEMS processing
UK-based etch and deposition system maker Oxford Instruments says that ‘Nanoscale Processing for NEMS and MEMS’ is the topic for its next technical workshop, being hosted in conjunction with the Institute of Electronics Micro-electronics and Nanotechnology (IEMN) in Lille, France on 8 April.
Aimed at scientists working in research and manufacturing with an interest in MEMS and NEMS, the one-day interactive technical seminar is designed to keep participants abreast of the latest technologies and trends in these industry research topics. Presentations will include research results from guest speakers, process and application talks and advice, and hints and tips from the experts at Oxford Instruments.
Talks will include:
- Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) – how to make the macro-world smaller;
- Nanoscale etch;
- MEMS research applications and results – IEMN;
- Looking towards the next generation of MEMS devices – a leading research organization;
- Atomic layer deposition (ALD) for MEMS – Eindhoven University;
- ALD research and results – Guest speaker.
The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Bombay hosted Oxford Instruments’ most recent Workshop last December. “Events such as this are an excellent opportunity not just for our researchers at IIT Bombay to learn about latest techniques but also for our colleagues outside this establishment to network and keep up to date with scientific advances,” comments IIT’s professor V.Ramgopal Rao.
“We organize an annual series of technical events worldwide, with extremely informative talks from a diverse range of speakers,” says Oxford Instruments’ sales & marketing director Dr David Haynes. “They are a great means of finding out about new techniques and meeting colleagues facing the same challenges and opportunities in an informal setting.”
