Micro-electro-opto-mechanics

Impact: Research Topic/Theme (at group level)

Description of impact

In this research line, we develop new concepts for microsystems that combine electrical, optical and/or mechanical functionalities. Examples are actuators and sensors for a wide range of applications, from lithography machines to new display principles to air quality sensing. One specific topic is neuromorphic computing, where we develop organic artificial synapses, integrated into interconnected networks capable of brain-inspired computing.
