Basics on current developments in the field of microactuation and microactuator-sensor systems

Goals and Outline

The lecture addresses students in the fields of mechanical engineering, mechatronics and information technology, materials science and engineering, electrical engineering and economic sciences. A comprehensive introduction is given in the basics and current developments on the microscopic length scale.

The lecture is core subject of the major course “Microactuators and Microsensors” of the specialization “Mechatronics and Microsystems Technology” in Mechanical Engineering.
Mechanical Engineering: Specialization M&M / Major 54

Outline:

  • Basic knowledge in the material science of the actuation principles
  • Layout and design optimization
  • Fabrication technologies
  • Selected developments
  • Applications

The lecture is in German, but can be given in English, depending on the listeners.
