MICROSYS is a laboratory of the University of Liege belonging to the Montefiore Institute (Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science). It was created in 2007 with the support of Walloon Government and European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
Microsys conducts inter-disciplinary research in the following cutting-edge fields:
- Exploratory research on micro-assembly, interconnection methods and packaging, including techniques for harsh environment and biochips
- Exploratory research on MEMS sensors, including simulation, design and characterization
- Path finding research on energy harvesting
- Design of ultra-low-power microsystems using components off-the-shelf, from packaged to bare dies
Microsys main facility is a 200 m² clean room certified ISO 7 (Class 10,000) including equipment for production and characterization of microsystems.
The Microsys team consists of 16 skillful members; among of them 10 are highly educated researchers (including 2 professors and 2 Ph.D. scientists) and 4 Ph.D. students.
