(Download a PDF for distribution)
The purpose of this symposium is to bring together leading educators and researchers from university, government, and industry around the world to promote the various exciting fields of micro/ nanotechnology. Representatives of university micro/nano fabrication facilities, ranging from new start-up labs to nationally recognized facilities, have found this symposium an excellent forum for exchanging information and presenting new research and educational concepts. Government agencies such as NSF, NIH, NIST, SEMATECH, SRC, DoD and ONR regularly participate with research papers and updates on funding opportunities. Industry interactions with universities, including technology transfer, collaborative research, and training efforts are frequently presented.
Scope of the UGIM symposium includes:
New Initiatives in University micro/nano programs, courses, laboratories, technology transfer, and industry interaction
- Government-University micro/nano research programs
- Micro/nano research projects in the areas of devices, materials, simulation, design, processing, testing, and reliability
- Process development, manufacturing, statistical process control and design of experiments
- MEMS and microelectronic programs, courses, applications, processing, interactions, and research
- Standard silicon and compound semiconductors
- Bioengineering and biotechnology activities related to micro/nanotechnology
- Nanotechnology and nanofabrication
- Metrology, sensors and actuators
- University micro/nano research facilities and their operation
- Industry efforts in micro/nanotechnology including technology transfer
