About the Event
Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS/NEMS) and devices are poised to revolutionize communications, instrumentation, and computational systems. To date, their deployment in emerging applications in health care, environment, and industrial processing, and defense and security has been impeded by a lack of understanding of the fundamental multi-physics/multi-scale phenomena that govern their performance. Modeling and simulation of MEMS/NEMS and nano/micro-fluidic devices provide interpretive and predictive framework for understanding the complexity of interactions between various physical domains and size scales, failure mechanisms, and sensitivity to operational variations.
This Symposium brings together leading researchers in this field to review recent progress and latest developments and review future challenges in NEMS/MEMS and Micro/Nano Fluidics.
