1st Vienna International Conference on Micro- and Nano-Technology

March 9 - 11, 2005. Vienna, Austria

Micro- and Nano-Technology up to now is rather poorly understood and developed. Nevertheless there are many future-orientated efforts all over the world in order to increase pertinent knowledge. This has not only fundamental importance, but, offers moreover an immense range of practical applications. Accordingly, Micro- and Nano-Technology has become a rapidly growing field.

It is the aim of this conference to address the main aspects of Micro- and Nano Technology with specific focus on the following nanotechnology issues:

  • PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL FUNDAMENTALS
  • NANO-MATERIALS
  • NANO-ENGINEERING AND –APPLICATIONS
  • NANO-TRIBOLOGY
  • MEASUREMENTS IN THE NANO-RANGE

Nanomaterials show significantly different mechanical properties. Material strength, scratch hardness as well as friction and wear are strongly influenced by the nanostructure. In addition, in the presence of gaseous or liquid media (e.g. lubricants) the material properties vary considerably. The near-surface volume changes due to mechanical activation chemistry. Engineering in this field has to consider these sometimes sophisticated facts and implement them into the many practical applications, ranging from precision systems to precision surface engineering, tribological systems, medical, respectively therapeutic devices, micro¬ and actuator systems, and others.

Experts from above and other fields are invited to present their research results as well as corresponding applications and to exchange ideas and discuss them with other colleagues working in different fields of research and application.
