iNEMI Nano-Attach Member Report, September 4, 2008

Advances in nanotechnology have enabled the realization of biomimetic-inspired structures (such as emulating a gecko's foot) that have demonstrated adhesion only with mechanical means, the ability to perform numerous attach-detach operations without performance degradation, and the ability to adhere to virtually any surface type.  Most important is the realization of a room-temperature, non-chemical, attachment process using nano-attach technology.

Phase I  
The first phase of the Nano-Attach Project led to the identification of electronic assembly applications that would benefit from nano-attach adhesion techniques and the necessary requirements for their adaptation.  Nano-attach technology gaps were identified from the team's technology benchmarking work.
