MNE 2024 Micro and Nano Engineering MNE 2024


Tutorial 1 | BioElectronics

Monday Morning, Room 1

  • Neuroelectronic interfaces, neuroscience concepts for physicists, patch clamp, extracellular electrodes
  • Introduction to neuromorphic circuits 
  • Impedancemetry, waves in tissues

Tutorial 2 | Towards sustainable processes for micro & nanotechnologies

Monday Morning Room 2

  • Sustainability of clean-room semiconductor processes
  • Technologies and practices to minimize greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, reduce energy consumption, preserve water and waste management
  • Processes to reduce environmental footprint of semiconductor manufacturing while maintaining high quality and performance standards

Tutorial 3 | Environmental sensors

Monday Afternoon Room 1

  • Infra-red absorption gas sensors
  • Plasmonic gas sensors
  • Environmental detection and low-cost technologies
  • Pollution sensors in water, ultrasonic acoustics

Tutorial 4 | Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology in microelectronics

Monday Afternoon Room 2

  • Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology: evaluating the environmental impacts of a product or process throughout its life cycle
  • Using the EF3.1 methodology (recommended by the European Commission), to identify the main environmental impacts (“hot spots”) and propose eco-design paths.
  • LCA case studies in microelectronics industry (from clean room manufacturing to components & systems)
