Mikroniek September issue: Metrology & Timekeeping

The cover story is about lensless microscopy using coherent diffractive imaging.


The September issue of Mikroniek, click here for a first impression, is devoted to the theme of Metrology & Timekeeping. Other theme articles include accurate timekeeping using atomic clocks, applications of silicon-based coompliant mechanisms in mechanical watches, and sensor technology in coordinate measuring technology. Henny Spaan, owner of IBS Precision Engineering, discusses metrology trends in precision manufacturing. Also included a report of the (non-virtual!) euspen Conference 2022 and a preview of the parts2clean 2022 fair dedicated to the precision cleaning of industrial parts and surfaces.
