In LIMMS, our research activities are concentrated on three main technologies fields, relating on micro- and nanotechnologies: BIO-MEMS, NANOTECH (Nanotechnology and Nanobiotechnology), ADVANCED MEMS/NEMS.

Through these three fields, we are investigating in solutions to overcome technical challenges by identifying and translating technologies from one field to solve problems in another.

These activities encompass technology developments in fabrication of micro- and nano-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS and NEMS), miniaturized total analysis systems (microTAS), bio-chip, tissue engineering, microfluidics, micromanipulation, smart and distributed MEMS, biosensors, and scanning probe data storage (AFM, STM).
