IEEE Workshop on MEMS & MIcrosystems with Hands on Training

IEEE Workshop on MEMS & Microsystems with Hands-on training in Device Simulation & Microfabrication Process” is being jointly organized by IEEE Student Branch, WiE Affinity group of IIT Kharagpur and IEEE EMB Student Club IIT Kharagpur. The workshop aims to provide an excellent forum to interact and share ideas on the MEMS and microelectronics system, technologies, emerging applications with hands-on simulation and fabrication procedure to the students, researchers and faculties working in the area of MEMS sensing and technology. This will be a three days workshop where experts from industries and academia are invited to share their knowledge in the respective fields.

Biomedical Breakthrough:Electronics Devices Dissolves in the Body

Scientists have created ultra-thin electronic devices that can “melt away” in the body once their job is done.

A new study, published in the journal Science, details how scientists have created a tiny, fully functional electronic device capable of vanishing within their environment, like in the body or in water, once they are no longer needed or useful. There are already implants that dispense drugs or provide electrical stimulation but they do not dissolve.

The latest creation is an early step in a technology that may benefit not only medicine, like enabling the development of medical implants that don’t need to be surgically removed or the risk of long-term side effects, but also electronic waste disposal.
