About MEMS

For More Information

This is only a very brief overview of the MEMS and Nanotechnology field. MEMS and Nanotechnology are still the subject of broad and diverse research efforts, and the field is constantly changing.

For more information, we invite you to contact us at engineering@mems-exchange.org. We also suggest that you read some of the published material about MEMS and Nanotechnology development written by our founder, Dr. Michael A. Huff, including:

Fundamentals of Microelectromechanical Systems
Chapter 23 of the Semiconductor Manufacturing Handbook
editor Hwaiyu Geng, McGraw-Hill, New York, 2005. (Reference).
Process Integration
Chapter 14 of the MEMS Materials and Processing Handbook
editors R. Ghodssi and P. Lin, Springer Press, New York, published in January 2011. (Reference).
BioMEMS and Biomaterials for Medical Applications
Biomaterials Science: An Integrated Clinical and Engineering Approach
edited by Yitzhak Rosen and Noel Elman, CRC Press, Boca Raton, FL, to be published in 2011.

You may also visit the MEMS and Nanotechnology Clearinghouse (MEMSnet) as a good starting point for further exploration. MEMSnet (www.memsnet.org) is an information service for the MEMS and Nanotechnology development communities, maintained by the MEMS and Nanotechnology Exchange. MEMSnet posts MEMS-related news, job and resume listings, provides a calendar of MEMS conferences and events, and maintains a list of relevant web sites.

We also have a MEMS and Nanotechnology reading list containing a number of books that will teach you more about MEMS and Nanotechnology.
