Welcome to the MEMS & Micro/Nano Systems Laboratory

About The MEMS Lab

The integration of electronic and mechanical components on the same silicon chip gave birth to a new technology, appropriately named microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) or microsystem technology (MST). MEMS has found applications in wide ranging areas such as chemical sensors, biosensors, aerospace, RF circuits, consumer electronics, etc. and it has been identified as one of the most promising technologies for the 21st Century. MEMS-based devices can range in size from a few micrometers to millimeters and have the ability to sense, control and actuate on the micro/nano scale. The MEMS industry is expected to be the driving force for next generation systems and subsystems.

MEMS and Micro/Nano Systems Laboratory established in 2010 to perform both basic and applied research in MEMS and Micro/Nanosystems. We constantly leverage our scale to new and more challenging heights.
