Survey on space applications of Finnish micro/nano technologies

Abstract

This report deals with Finnish involvement in MNT projects and the relevance of Finnish MNT expertise from the space technology perspective. At least nine Finnish companies can be identified having strong focus on MNT or related technologies. Most of them have active collaboration with various research institutes that develop new technologies. Practically every technical university in Finland has current MNT research activities. From technological point of view, the most promising applications are various micro-accelerometers and versatile optical applications, such as imaging microbolometers, micromechanical mirrors and grid filters. X-ray detection with bolometers utilising SQUID based readout electronics will have a major focus. Also packaging technology and specialised software need to be developed in association with the new applications. Various robotic applications are being developed as a result of these efforts.
