The Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS organizes the 14th international conference on Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers (MUT) to be held at the ART’otel in Dresden, Germany from 19th to 20th May 2015.

Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers (MUTs) are MEMS based structures that can be used to generate and sense acoustic signals in the ultrasonic range. At Fraunhofer IPMS scientists are working on bridging the gap between research and commercial applications for MUT technology in the fields of new medical imaging techniques, non-destructive testing or gas and chemical sensors just to name a few.

The event is designed for companies dealing with medical technologies, nondestructive testing, industry automation, bio analytics, environmental technologies, life sciences as well as food or chemical industry. More over the workshop addresses universities, research institutions and students who are dedicated to the research and development of CMUTs or who are interested in an opportunity to share experiences on the topic.

Companies will have the option to present their products and services to the participants before and during the event with exclusive sponsoring activities. The call for papers is now open. Attendees may submit their abstracts by 02 March 2015 via
