Research

Nano-Electro-Mechanical Systems (NEMS) are the natural evolution of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) by downscaling their dimensions close to or below 1 µm. This size reduction conveys NEMS with unprecedented responsivity and resolution, which makes them very promising as sensors for different physical and chemical magnitudes.

The Advanced NEMS group aims to go beyond the current State-of-the-Art in NEMS by focusing on:

  • New sensing schemes
  • Fundamental noise processes
  • Use of complex dynamics and nonlinearities
  • Higher order inter-field coupling

Our research is multidisciplinary in nature, located within Microengineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics and Bioengineering. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in our research or if you want to establish a collaboration. You can have a look in our website to the group’s support sources, the list of publications, and the list of available student projects.
