This learning module is an introduction to the CENEMS simulation tool. Nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) often contains multiple nanoscale conductors. CENEMS is a user-friendly 2-D classical electrostatic analysis tool that computes the charge density distribution on the surface of the nanoconductors in NEMS.

The learning module provides a brief introduction to NEMS and the theory behind CENEMS, a tutorial that shows the steps of performing a classical electrostatic analysis of nanoconductors, a quiz and two exercises.
