Chalmers University of Technology, located in Göteborg, Sweden, is a leading European university of technology. The Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience - MC2 is doing research and education with focus on future electronics, photonics, bio- and nanosystems. MC2 houses a cleanroom for micro- and nanofabrication with the latest equipment. Our work is often done in close collaboration with Swedish and international partners within academy, industry and society. With a unique research competence we offer education on undergraduate and graduate level and within three international masters programmes. The Bio-, Electronics Materials and Packaging Group focuses on development of new materials and processes for bio and electronics applications. The major focus of the research is towards development of nanomaterials based technology. This includes nanoscaffolds for stem cell proliferation and differentiation, nano-thermal interface materials, nanocooling devices as well as nano lead free solders and adhesives for electronics cooling and interconnects applications. The final goal is to develop platforms for heterogeneous integration including biological cells as functional parts in future electronic systems.



Prof. Johan Liu is the head of the BioNano Systems Laboratory at Department of Microtechnology and nanoscience, Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden. As a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) and a fellow of IEEE, he has published over 370 papers in journals, proceedings and book chapters in the field of electronics packaging technology and materials. He has 19 patents accepted or filed and has given about 30 key note/invited talks during the last 10 years.


Dr Murali Murugesan holds a Ph D degree in polymer science and engineering from India. He has spent four years after Ph D in USA in several universities carrying research related to CNT purification and polymer functionalization. He is now focusing on functionalization issues of PI and CNTs for electronics applications.
