Microstructures, electronics, nanotechnology - these vast fields of research are growing together as the size gap narrows and many different materials are combined. Current research, engineering sucesses and newly commercialized products hint at the immense innovative potentials and future applications that open up once mankind controls shape and function from the atomic level right up to the visible world without any gaps. Continuing from the previous volume, authors from three major competence centres for microengineering here cover all aspects of specialized replication techniques and how to employ state-of-the-art technologies for testing and characterizing micro-scale components, and illustrate quality control aspects and strategies for automation of production procedures in view of future industrial production and commercialisation.

About Author

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Detlef Lohe studied mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Karlsruhe, Germany and obtained his Ph.D. in 1980. After heading the microstructure and mechancal behaviour working group there, he was appointed in 1991 as professor for materials science at Paderborn University, Germany, where he received an award for outstanding teaching achievements in 1994. In the same year, he returned to the Institute for Materials Science and Enginering I at Karlsruhe Technical University as its Director. He is Speaker of the Collaborative Research Centre 499 "Design, production and quality assurance of molded microparts constructed of metals and ceramics" and has been a Senator of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) since 2003. His research interests focus on metallic and ceramic materials properties and durability under different kinds of stress, component manufacture and behaviour, optimisation of heat treatment methods, and failure analysis. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jurgen Haubetaelt studied Physics and Materials Sciences at the University of Erlangen, Germany. After his doctorate and a research stay at Stanford University he joined Degussa AG in 1977, starting in metals research. After having worked as technical director in Degussa-s subsidiary in New York City, he returned to Germany in 1985 and was first in charge of metals research, then managed the entire materials development und process technology of Degussa-s corporate division "Metals". In 1993 he joined Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe as head of the Institute of Materials Research III. In addition, he was appointed professor at Freiburg University as Chair for Micromaterials Process Technology at IMTEK in 1996. In 1998 he became member of the supervisory board of Norddeutsche Affinerie AG, Hamburg.
