What a great show in Copenhagen during the MNE 2018 – the 44th International Conference on Micro- and Nanofabrication and Manufacturing (http://www.mne2018.org/).

We are back from Denmark and got excited by a big bundle of impressions, interesting talks, and of course with a lot of good feedback regarding our products and presentations. Scientists and Engineers of diverse universities, institutes, and high tech companies around the world got the opportunity to present the recent results in micro and nano patterning techniques and their materials. More than 420 talks and posters were presented. 34 exhibitors showed their newest developments, products, and services. The MRT team participated on many levels – in the academic and the commercial discussions.

Not only caused by our presentations during  the sessions we again got a high traffic on our booth where we informed the interested community about our newest innovation regarding photoresists, special polymers, UV-curable hybrid polymers and ancillary materials for micro- and nanolithography applications and micro-optics manufacture. Furthermore, micro resist technology gratefully sponsored this year’s MNE Fellow Award to Dr. John Randall from Zyvex Labs, a pioneer in MEMS/NEMS technology and advanced lithography.
