Welcome to LIMMS web site

 

LiMMS is an international research unit on MEMS and NEMS (Micro- and Nano-Electro-Mechanical Systems) operated in joint names of France, CNRS - Institut des sciences de l'ingenierie et des Systemes INSIS, and Japan, Institute of Industrial Science (IIS), The University of Tokyo.

 

LiMMS is located on Komaba Campus (II), in Tokyo. Our Research activities are focused on 3 main fields related to micro- and nano- technologies: Bio MEMS, Nanotechnologies, Advanced MEMS. 

Since 2016, LIMMS has highlighted 4 general fields of applications of these technologies by propose specific research axis : Integrative Bioengineering, bioMEMS for translational research, Energy and Smart Sensors in society.
