Description

Advanced Micro & Nanosystems (AMN) provides cutting-edge reviews and detailed case studies by top authors from science and industry, covering technologies, devices and advanced systems from the micro and nano worlds, which together have an immense innovative application potential that opens up with control of shape and function from the atomic level right up to the visible world without any technological gaps.
In this topical volume, authors from leading industrial players and research institutions present a concise and didactical introduction to Micro Process Engineering, the combination of microtechnology and process engineering into a most promising and powerful tool for revolutionizing chemical processes and industrial mass production of bulk materials, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals and many other products.
The book takes the readers from the fundamentals of engineering methods, transport processes, and fluid dynamics to device conception, simulation and modelling, control interfaces and issues of modularity and compatibility. Fabrication strategies and techniques are examined next, focused on the fabrication of suitable microcomponents from various materials such as metals, polymers, silicon, ceramics and glass. The book concludes with actual applications and operational aspects of micro process systems, giving broad coverage to industrial efforts in America, Europe and Asia as well as laboratory equipment and education.

Author Information

Norbert Kockmann is scientific group leader at the Institute of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK - Design of Microsystems), University
of Freiburg. After his diploma of aerospace engineering at TU Munich, he joined in 1991 Bremen University, Chair of Technical Themodynamics, Heat and Mass Transfer. After finishing his PhD work on fouling in heat exchangers in 1996, he worked as a project manager at Messer Griesheim GmbH for the plant engineer-ing of air separation units and a syngas plant. His research interests include the design, fabrication, and experimental characterization of micro-structured devices as well as the fundamental processes in microsystems.
