 Microsistemas & Nanotecnologias




























INESC Microsistemas e Nanotecnologias (INESC MN) is a private, non-profit Research and Development institute created in January, 2002 from the former Solid State Technology group of INESC. INESC MN operates a Class 100/10 cleanroom with optical and e-beam lithography allowing nanoscale device fabrication.

INESC MN is dedicated to:

  • leading edge research and development in strategic technological areas of micro- and nanotechnologies and the application of these technologies to electronic, biological and biomedical devices;

  • advanced training of young scientists and engineers at the university, post-graduate and post-doctoral levels in micro- and nanotechnologies

  • transfer of technology to both Portuguese and international industries through collaborative research, contract research, prototyping and consulting
