Special Symposium

Micro, and Nano Electro Mechanical systems (MEMS & NEMS), by their very nature as sensors and/or actuators, must interact with their environment. This need for interaction implies the interaction of various physical energy domains. Semiconductor materials naturally offer the strong field coupling required by such transducers, not only by their physical material properties, but also through the use of small length scales with corresponding manufacturing technologies.

Novel material sets, reduced physical dimensions, and the increasing blending of traditionally disparate engineering disciplines is evident in recent research and development in this rapidly developing field.

This symposium will address technical advancements in the topics listed below, but will encourage submissions addressing any research, development or commercialization activity. We additionally encourage your participation in this community, through your comments, suggestions and offers for assistance in review and organization.
