Nanotechnology Now welcomes Marlene Bourne and her new column on 'MEMS and Nanotech in Ink Jet Printing'

Banks, OR | Posted on February 22nd, 2007

Marlene Bourne is internationally recognized as one of the leading experts on MEMS (MicroElectroMechanical Systems) and its convergence with Nanotechnology. With more than a decade of expertise as an industry analyst, her technology and market insight extends from the chip to the end-use product, with both broad and deep knowledge of countless products, companies, markets and applications.

Marlene has provided insight on MEMS, Nanotechnology and other emerging technologies to many business and technical publications, including Business 2.0, Business Week, The Economist, Forbes, Investor's Business Daily, Los Angeles Times Magazine, the New York Times, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal . She has authored numerous articles for a wide array of industry publications and is a frequent speaker at conferences and corporate events.

Prior to launching Bourne Research, Marlene was Vice President of Research and Principal Analyst with Small Times Media, where she helped create a market research division focused on MEMS and Nanotechnology. From 2000 through 2005, Marlene followed the emergence and growth of MEMS as Senior Analyst at In-Stat, a leading provider of high-tech market research. Before that, Marlene spent five years as a freelance industry analyst specializing in MEMS, as well as a wide range of sensors and sensor-based technologies.
Marlene holds a Bachelor of Science in Business from the University of Wisconsin - Stout, and a Master of Arts in International Business and International Economics from the American University in Washington, DC.

Here is a excerpt from this month's column:

"I've seen more printhead technology breakthroughs—and newcomers—enter the ink jet printing market in the past few months or so than I've seen in years. Three notable trends are emerging: the introduction of hybrid printheads (which combine both piezo and MEMS approaches), the kind of inks that are being developed (everything from biological materials to carbon nanotubes), and what they're being used to produce."
