Micro-engineering and Nano-technology Research Group

The Group is situated in the Bio-medical and Micro Engineering Research Centre.

Every day, engineers at Birmingham embark on futuristic explorations that are rapidly turning fantastic ideas, which would not be out of place in a science fiction story, into industrial and commercial reality.

We are voyaging into the domain of the astonishingly small - the world of nanotechnology where objects are measured not in millimetres or even microns but nanometres - one thousand millionth of a metre.
