Course: Nanotribology and Nanomechanics and Applications to MEMS/NEMS and BioMEMS/BioNEMS
Understand the principles of nanotribology and nanomechanics.
Acquire knowledge about adhesion and stiction.
Learn the applications to MEMS/NEMS and BioMEMS/BioNEMS.
This course provides attendees with a basic working knowledge of nanotribology and nanomechanics and applications of MEMS/NEMS and BioMEMS/BioNEMS. The course concentrates on the recent research carried out using scanning probe microscopy.
Who Should Attend?
Scientists, engineers, and technicians/technologists who are involved in design, selection of materials/coatings and study of failure mechanisms of various mico/nanodevices, especially in magnetic storage devices, MEMS/NEMS and BioMEMS/NEMS applications.
