Research at Micro and Nanosystems
Micro and nano electromechanical systems (MEMS) are enabling major advances within areas including medicine, biotechnology, optics and radio frequency technology. KTH MST is the largest MEMS team in Sweden, and our research is world-class.
The technology makes it possible to construct components and systems in the order of magnitude from one millimetre down to nano level. These then appear in applications such as medical instruments and mobile technology, where it is absolutely crucial to build complex functions into a small area. The microscale provides better performance, and allows us to do things that would be impossible at macro level. Using less material also makes it more cost-effective. At KTH MST, researchers have developed components that are used in medical implants and sensors, microsystems for energy conversion and microcomponents for wireless communication.
