Dou, X. (author)
In the semiconductor industry, the minimumelement size has stepped into nanometer level. To keep the functionality of fabricated nanostructures, there is a huge demand of a technique that can provide non-destructive inspection and allow for in-line or in-situ monitoring during the manufacturing process. Optical scatterometry, which uses the far...

Klemm, B. (author)
Signal transduction in living systems enables adaptive and interactive response to external stimuli. These rudimentary primary processes developed by nature are currently absent in synthetic materials. Implementing these processes in materials can have widespread advances in regenerative medicine, diagnostics or nanomachines. Taking inspiration...
