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