The Centre of Excellence in Metrology for Micro and Nano Technologies (CEMMNT) has launched a website that provides information for industry on metrology, surface analysis and systems engineering. Designed for ease of navigation, each section interlinks enabling visitors to understand the fundamental principles behind commonly applied technologies, their applications and relevance for each industry sector.
The site includes details on cutting edge measurement and characterisation techniques highlighting their key capabilities. More than 30 case study applications underline the practical benefits of measurement and characterisation at the micro and nanoscale. Examples from design, development, quality control and failure analysis underline the importance throughout the product development process and supply chain. Web pages focusing on different industry sectors collate the key techniques and relevant applications that are commonly applied to accelerate product commercialisation. Downloadable case studies and roadmaps provide background on direction for future innovation ad underline the advantages of applying systems engineering methodologies. The site additionally provides details of conferences, workshops and exhibitions for the community. With new information being added weekly, the site provides a valuable portal for industry.
