5th National Conference on Nano- and Micromechanics


Airit Agasty, NaMeS PhD student, participated in the 5th National Conference of Nano- and Micromechanics organized by Prof. Gotszalk at Wroclaw University of Technology.

This conference was an international meeting of scientists, researchers, and engineers from both the academic and industrial sectors. The conference was devoted to the discussion and presentation of the recent progress and the possible future developments in the fields of Nano- and Micromechanics when applied to electronics, nanotechnology, biotechnology, photonics and life sciences.

During this conference, Airit Agasty attended many important lectures of scientists from the best centers in the world. This lectures included current topics of Carbon Nanotubes, advances in various microscopy and lithography techniques, molecular motors, Graphene, Spectroscopic techniques and applications, NEMS and MEMS technologies such as Submicron Sensors and Microfluidic junctions, to name a few. As a doctoral student at the very initial stages of his research, this was an eye-opening learning curve in terms of not just the level of scientific development, technology and knowledge involved, but also in terms of presentation styles, and ability to properly communicate and interact with researchers from different career stages and disciplines. Some of the presented results, especially concerning AFM Techniques and their various developments and applications, seemed more interesting and important from the point of view of his own research project. And as a result of a few interesting discussions, this could probably lead to the start of a cooperation with the group of Prof. Gotszalk. There was also very good discussions and exchange of contacts with representatives of companies such as MSA Systems, Asylum Research AFMs.
