The FEMTO-ST Institute is one of the largest French laboratories in engineering science. Combining scientific fields such as automatic control, acoustics, energy, computer science, mechanics, mechatronics, microsystems, nanotechnology, optics and time-frequency, its research aims at controlling the micro and nanotechnologies, integrating ever denser and smarter functions for the emergence of components and systems for optimized performances. The institute is composed of seven scientific departments, of several technological platforms, including a leading national micro and nanofabrication centre (MIMENTO); as well as technology development centre (FEMTO-Engineering).
