Mesa+ - NanoLab
25 Oct 2017 - UT developing a new type of synthetic molecular machine
Researchers at the University of Twente’s research institute MESA+ are constructing molecular machines capable of exerting a measurable force at nanoscale and in fluid environment. The design of these machines is based on self-assembling supramolecular tubules which can accumulate and store energy from light and convert it into a mechanical work.

Upcoming CELT workshops for UT lecturers:
6 Dec 2016 - University of Twente researchers able to study individual defects in transistors
Scientists from the University of Twente’s MESA+ research institute have developed a method for studying individual defects in transistors. All computer chips, which are each made up of huge numbers of transistors, contain millions of minor ‘flaws’.
30 Sep 2016 - Scale-up facility for microfluidic systems
The University of Twente, Saxion University of Applied Sciences and four high tech companies are combining forces to increase the production capacity for microfluidic systems. As part of this pilot line project (“proeftuin”), they are improving access for SMEs to their facilities, including the MESA+ NanoLab and High tech Factory. Moreover, four concrete demonstrators to suit a range of applications will be developed, including a micropipette and micro needle.
