Overview

  • The EDMI lies at the intersection of micro/nano electronics, micro/nano systems, and bioengineering. We cover the knowledge chain from novel material systems (silicon, graphene, flexible/stretchable, etc) to new device and/or sensor principles up to their use in innovative system applications, including circuit design for micro/nano-sensor interfacing and advanced power management for ambient intelligence applications.
  • Our PhD students are major users of the Center of micro/nano-technology (CMI), our world-class cleanroom that has a strong MEMS, Nanofabrication, and microfluidic focus. More than 20 EPFL laboratories and research groups are affiliated with the EDMI, all having strong interactions with Swiss and European industry.
