Welcome to the MEMS and NEMS group! If you are a student or practicing engineer or scientist who wants to learn more about MEMS and NEMS or an instructor looking for materials to use in a course, you can find material here that includes complete courses and seminars on specialized topics.
Much of the material is freely accessible by any visitor, but by joining this group, you can participate in discussions on topics of interest to you, post items to the group wiki or even work on a project with other group members. Additionally, as a group member you may receive notifications about new materials and events of interest to the MEMs and NEMS group members. Adding events to the group calendar is as easy as clicking on “add event”.
You can also contribute substantial resources to nanoHUB through the resource contribution process, and then send a message to the group manager so that links to those resources can be added to this group.
This group contains the following:

Selected Topics: PRISM, MEMS, dielectric charging, micromechanical modeling
SugarCube is a tool which facilitates the parameterization of ready-made MEMS. Using this tool one can investigate the performance of parameterized MEMS which are available in the form of hierarchical libraries.
Cantilever modeling and simulation with different loads
Parametric Tang’s Comb-Drive Modeling and Simulation
Modeling and simulationg of ADXL accelerometer
Modeling and Simulation of a Chevron Thermal Actuator
Simulate the user input netlist by SUGAR2.0
Model comb drive levitation effect with Schwarz-Christoffel based algorithm
Calculate the capacitance between two conductors that may be represented as simply-connected polygonal geometries in 2.5D with Dirichlet boundary conditions
Calculates squeeze-film damping Q-factors of microcantilevers for arbitrary ambient pressures
Computes the surface charge density distribution on the surface of the conductors in a multiconductor system
Simulates pull-in behavior of Carbon nanotube based NEMS with cantilever boundary conditions, with and without Vander Waal’s effect.
