Welcome to the Group of Micro and Nanosystems


20.11.2014 - The collaborative research between our group and  the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems is featured on ETH News.
01.09.2014 - The paper "Superparamagnetic Twist-Type Actuators with Shape-Independent Magnetic Properties and Surface Functionalization for Advanced Biomedical Applications " by Christian Peters, Olgac Ergeneman, Salvador Pané et al. was featured on the front cover of Advanced Functional Materials volume 24, issue 33! (check it here!)
24.7.2014 - Marie Francine, Alexandre, Cyril and Daniel place second at the 2014 International Contest of Application in Nano-micro Technology (iCAN'14, Congratulations for this great achievement!

"TURNING PROPERTIES INTO FUNCTIONS" - In our group, basic engineering research is dedicated to bringing new functionalities to micro and nanodevices by exploiting the properties of promising materials.

Research activities

Research activities of our group are centred on two focus areas: Nanotransducers and Nanosystems and Advanced Microsystems.


Education and teaching

Education and teaching on Micro and Nanosystems is a core activity of our group.

We offer courses from the basics of microsystems technology to a practical course for hands-on-MEMS experience. Many of our educational contributions are offered through the Master in Micro and Nanosystems program.   We also contribute to the Bachelor and Master Programs of the Departments of Mechanical and Process Engineering (MAVT), Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (ITET) and Physics (PHYS).
