SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVE DEVICES
A team at Motorola Labs have built a SAW device with a well defined frequency response  
(Resnick 2004-1).

MOLECULAR MOTORS
The University of Lund team have been working on molecular motors for a number of years.
The latest update was delivered at NNT 2005  (Montleius 2005).

MICROFLUIDICS
A comprehensive review of microfluidic device applications and manufacturing techniques
has been published (Fiorini 2005)

Microfluidic devices are self-contained miniature devices that carry-out bioanalytical
processes and detect the results. Successful implementation requires integration of various
fluid manipulation components (e.g. pumps, valves, mixers, and filters) and separation and
detection techniques (e.g. chromatography, electrophoresis, and fluorescence) for a complete
on-chip system to be viable.  Multilayer pumps made from imprinting elastomeric materials
via soft lithography have been demonstrated  ( Unger 2000, Studer 2002, Kim 2004).

Three-dimensional multilayered microfluidic channels have been fabricated by UV imprinting,
making it suitable for  lab-on-a-chip applications  (Yoshikawa 2004, Liu 2003 ).

A team at Osaka Prefecture University have built 3 dimensional fluidic structures with
integrated flow channels by transfer imprint (Ooe 2005).

SENSORS
The Lund U team have fabricated cantelivers as an element in making CMOS based sensors.
(Carlberg 2003). They have also demonstrated a redox electrochemical sensor (Montelius
2003).
