(Nanowerk News) The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) announced that Dr. Michael T. Postek, chief of the precision engineering division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been confirmed as the keynote speaker for both the MicroManufacturing and NanoManufacturing Conferences. The events are scheduled April 22-23, 2008 at the Framingham Sheraton in Framingham, Mass.
Postek's presentation entitled "You Can't Make It If You Can't Measure It" will discuss the challenges faced in the development of the necessary instrumentation, metrology, and standards for micro and nano manufacturing that is scaleable, controllable, predictable, and repeatable to meet market needs. He has been involved with micro and nano-scale scanning electron microscope-based length metrology for over 20 years and has published over 200 papers, articles and book chapters on this and related topics.
The addition of Postek adds to the high caliber leaders who are slated to appear at these industry events that focus on not just the future of the technology, but what is actually available today.
