Past Activities & Events
Today, we see exciting new nanostructures, new nanodevices, and new applications for nanotechnology emerging every day. Missing is a coherent vision, process or plan for the growth of a real NanoManufacturing Industry. The Workshop on Future Technologies for Micro/Nano Manufacturing was initiated by the Transducers Research Foundation as the first in a series of topical meetings with the goal of exploring emerging issues to North American Engineering Technological Communities and the goal of this Workshop is to develop a technology vision for the future of micro-nano manufacturing and to articulate opportunities.
The objective of our conference is to catalyze innovation in micro- and nano-scale technologies for power generation and energy conversion. Broadly speaking, PowerMEMS focuses on all aspects of energy conversion and processing at the micro and nano scales. Its topics of interest range from basic principles, to materials and fabrication, to devices and systems, to applications. All energy domains are of interest, including, but not limited to: electrical, fluidic, gravitational, hydraulic, mechanical, nuclear, optical, pneumatic and thermal energy domains.
Hilton Head Workshop
Since 1984, TRF has sponsored a biennial regional workshop on "Solid-State Sensors, Actuators, and Microsystems" in Hilton Head, South Carolina. The Workshop provides a highly interactive forum for North and South American researchers to present and discuss recent advances in the technologies of sensing, actuation devices and microsystems for physical, chemical, optical, and biological applications. Technical Program is driven by abstract subsmissions. Topics include: new concepts in sensor, actuator, and microsystems; design and modeling methodologies for device and processes; fabrication techniques including all aspects of microfabrication, materials and methods of processing; circuits for sensors, actuators and system implementations; packaging and testing, including data analysis for device and systems interfaced to the application environment.
