Aim of course

The lecture aims at offering a basic understanding for handling of extremely minaturized  components of hybrid micro and nano systems. It is to make future researchers and engineers acquainted with the topic and thus to enable them for evaluating alternative concepts.

Subject of course

Trends in micro and nano handling, functional requirements for grippers, endeffectors and handling stations (micro/ nano robots), automated micro/nano handling: problems and challenges, experience and results from FP6 project ASSEMIC (coordinated by the lecturer), special focus: handling of carbo nano tubes CNTs, approaches for improving reliability and troughput, aspects of standardization on national and European level, material testing, aspects of health and safety in the use of nano materials
