Abstract

The scale at which engineers and scientists study and manipulate matter has dramatically changed in the last decade. Engineers are using micromachining techniques to pattern surfaces with nanometer resolution, while scientists now routinely design and produce macromolecules using molecular biology and organic chemistry. The convergence of the scales on which we work has the potential to produce a paradigm shift in chemical and mechanical manufacturing. This class will prepare engineers and scientists to address problems they will encounter when studying physical phenomena in micro- and nanoelectromechanial systems. This course will provide the student with the tools to analyze statics, dynamics, surface phenomena, and fluid dynamics problems at the micron scale. Specific laboratory- on-a-chip (LOC) and microelectromechanical system (MEMS) devices will be analyzed quantitatively using Finite Element Methods.
