    AMICOM network of excellence has three North Star Projects (NSP). One of them is MMID – Millimetre Wave Identification Using RF MEMS and Nanocomponents. Key objectives of MMID NSP are: a) To study the basic concept of MMID, b) to define in detail primary MEMS and nanocomponent development areas, c) to design and prototype selected millimeter MEMS and nanocomponents, d) experiment and test capabilities of the MMID concept at 60 GHz or above, and e) even not being the prime focus, to conceptualise new biosensor and mmwave tag combinations. Millimeter waves facilitate an unusually fruitful frequency range for molecular (material and substance) spectral line measurements.
