 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




 Highlight of recent INESC MN publications: Recent publications are highlighted in this new section (here...).

Applications are open for 2 BI-Mestre research grants in the FCT funded project "Redes Neuronais Adaptativas baseadas em Memristors" (PTDC/CTM-NAN/122868/2010). Deadline: 23 February 2015. For more information click here.

Microfluidics Working Group - A new microfluidics working group is being created to allow people working on microfluidics at INESC MN to share information and to resolve problems in the lab. All people who are working on or are planning to work on microfluidics are required to join this group. More information will be posted in the Internal Section of this webpage under "Microfluidics Working Group".

Doctoral Programme on Advanced Integrated Microsystems (AIM) - The application period for FCT funded Doctoral Programme coordenated by INESC MN will be announced shortly. Detailed information can be found at the AIM website here...

A book co-edited and coauthored (2 chapters) by Susana Freitas is awarded Distinguished Publication Award by the Magnetics Society of Japan in 2014 - "Smart Sensors, Measurement and Instrumentation", Vol. 6, Giant Magnetoresistance (GMR) Sensors: From basis to State-of-the-Art Applications (more...)
