Call for papers: Micro and Nanotechnologies for Medical Devices

A special issue of International Journal of Mechatronics and Manufacturing Systems

The current trends in the design and manufacturing of medical devices are supported by significant advances in micro and nanotechnologies. This special issue will cover the state-of-the-art in machines and manufacturing processes that incorporate micro and nanotechnologies with applications in medical devices. It invites the submission of high quality and original research articles related to advances in micro and nanotechnologies for medical devices.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Nanostructured biomaterials for medical devices
  • Microfluidic systems and MEMS for medical devices
  • Electrospinning for nanofibres
  • Micro cutting and material removal (milling, EDM, grinding, deburring, among others)
  • Micro processing of plastics (injection molding, extrusion, embossing, among others)
  • Micro forming of metals (incremental sheet forming, forging, extrusion, among others)
  • Lasers and laser processing of biomaterials
  • Nanocoatings and surface treatment
  • Metrology systems at micro and nanoscale
  • Advanced microtechnologies in robotics and instruments for surgery (orthopaedic, ophthalmic, laparoscopy, electrosurgery, among others)
Important Date
Submission of Manuscripts: 31 October, 2010
