"It is great to continue working with many familiar people I consider friends"
My name is Simon Bleiker, and I am a postdoctoral researcher at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. Stockholm has been my home for almost 10 years, a time I’ve spent obtaining my PhD in Micro and Nanotechnology, broadening my horizon in the space industry where I worked on microsatellites, and now continuing my research on nano-electromechanical (NEM) devices.
Originally, I come from Switzerland, just outside of Zurich, where I spent my school years and later studied electrical engineering at ETH Zurich. However, my family roots lie deep in the Alps, and I still very much enjoy being surrounded by mountains whenever I can visit.Read more
"What I find really cool about ZeroAMP is its non-mainstream character"
My name is Federica Haupt, and I’m working as communications coordinator at AMO GmbH. I’m originally from Genova, Italy, but since 10 years I am living in Aachen, which is right at the border between Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. It’s a small town with a large technical University (the RWTH Aachen University). This gives a very distinctive character to the city.Read more
The ZeroAMP 4th Consortium Meeting took place online on 01-02 June 2021. Despite the difficult conditions of the last year, this was a very fruitful scientific meeting: the main challenges of the project were discussed intensively to find the most appropriate strategies. We hope to meet in person for our next meeting in the September!
"The technology is very innovative, which makes it very interesting to work on it"
My name is Ivan Marozau, and I work at the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology, CSEM. I am specialized in reliability assessment and lifetime evaluation of electrical and electromechanical systems and components. At the same time, my expertise extends into material science, which is helpful for a deep understanding of failure modes and mechanisms. I live close to my workplace in Neuchatel, where every day we can enjoy a beautiful mountains view across the lake.Read more
“The beauty of our approach is that nanomechanical switches complement more conventional solid-state technology and can be integrated in the same chip with transistors”
My name is Dinesh Pamunuwa and I am currently a Reader / Associate Professor at the University of Bristol. I am in the second year of a five-year senior-research fellowship sponsored by the Royal Academy of Engineering and Microchip. My area of expertise is next generation computation platforms, with a special focus on disruptive technologies. My prior work and intellectual property form the backbone of the ZeroAMP project.Read more
