Gentle high-temperature crystallisation: Fraunhofer ILT, together with Fraunhofer ISIT and IST, has developed a selective, laser-based crystallisation process for the manufacture of MEMS sensor units directly on active circuits. (Image: Fraunhofer ILT)

Laser process to optimise MEMS sensor size and performance

Researchers are using laser-based crystallisation to eliminate the need for wires and solder joints in the monolithic integration of MEMS sensors

Innovative wafer-level optics technologies help solve a key challenge of connecting many fibers to silicon chips for datacom and telecom applications. (Image: Teramount)

EV Group and Teramount collaborate on PIC packaging technologies

The collaboration will leverage EVG's nanoimprint lithography technology, expertise and services with Teramount's PhotonicPlug technology

The micro loudspeaker proves that microactuators can be produced in seconds and at low costs using inkjet printers and lasers. (Image: Fraunhofer ILT)

Researchers print cost-effective MEMS loudspeaker

The process could be used as a faster and more affordable alternative to vacuum- and mask-based piezo-MEMS manufacturing methods

Automotive lidar market to reach $1.4 billion by 2022

Despite just three per cent growth in the volume of cars sold expected through to 2022, the average growth rate in sensors sales volumes will rise above 8 per cent during the next five years, and above 14 per cent growth in sales value
