>> Zhang Lab: LMST

Boston University Laboratory for Microsystems Technology (LMST), directed by Professor Xin Zhang, was founded in 2002 as an interdisciplinary program in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Division of Materials Science and Engineering within the University's College of Engineering.

LMST is dedicated to interdisciplinary research in the design, fabrication, characterization, packaging, and operation of micro and nanosystems for biomedical, energy, and defense applications, including research topics on Photonic Microsystem, Biological/biomedical Micro/nanosystem, Power and Energy, and Advanced Materials and Manufacturing.

LMST (I) is located in the 9th floor of Boston University Photonics Center (BUPC) (Director: Dr. Thomas Bifano). BUPC is a 235,000 square foot facility with ten floors that house more than twenty-five faculty research laboratories, three shared laboratories and a business incubator. The BUPC also has instructional and seminar facilities specifically designed for photonics research and education. Professor Zhang holds a Photonics Faculty position; LMST members have a full access to all the equipment and facilities at the Center.

LMST (II) is located in the Fraunhofer USA Center for Manufacturing Innovation (Director: Dr. Andre Sharon) at Boston University. Professor Zhang holds the Fraunhofer Professorship through association and collaboration with the Fraunhofer which has significant experience in developing new machining technologies and production processes for biotechnology, photonics, manufacturing, and renewable energy.

In addition, LMST members has general accesses to many other unique micro- and nano- fabrication and characterization equipment and facilities owned and maintained by our Collaborators at Boston University.

Be Safe, Be Neat, Be Clean
It is a University requirement that all researchers attend a Laboratory Safety and Hazardous Waste Management lecture every year. These lectures are given on a monthly basis by the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS). In the event of an accident requiring immediate attention (e.g., bodily injury, fire, major chemical spill): Dial the Boston University Police (353-2121) and report clearly the nature and location of the accident.
