Mechanical & Chemical Sensors
The activity on sensors and MEMs is of strategic importance both for the country and for Europe. MEMs products have a number of distinguishing attributes that make them attractive for the advanced manufacturing industry of the coming century. These include:
• Suitability for low cost, high volume production
• Reduced size, weight and energy consumption
• High functionality
• Improved reliability and robustness
This activity at IMEL started at the early nineties and the Institute develops novel technologies, devices and promotes technology transfer and patent licensing to the industry.
