Teaching Activities at the LMTS

  • Advanced MEMS & microsystems

    In depth analysis of the operation principles and technology of advanced micro- and nanosystems. Familiarisation to their implementation into products and their applications.

    Section of Microtechnics
    Teachers: Briand Danick
    Language: english
    Academic term: 2022-2023


  • Mechanism Design I

    This course introduces the basics of structural mechanics: calculation of stresses and strains caused by external forces and calculation of strains. This theoretical training is applied to the design of important elements of precision mechanisms.

    Section of Microtechnics

  • Scaling in MEMS

    (Coursebook not yet approved by the section)

    Doctoral Program in Microsystems and Microelectronics
    Teachers: Shea Herbert
    Language: english
    Academic term: 2022-2023


  • Scaling laws & simulations in micro & nanosystems

    This class combines an analytical and finite elements modeling (FEM) simulations approach to scaling laws in MEMS/NEMS. The dominant physical effects and scaling effects when downsizing sensors and actuators in microsystems are discussed, across a broad range of actuation principles.
