Nano-Mechanics

The Nano mechanics investigates mechanical properties of engineered and biological materials at the Nano to macro-scale using experimental, analytical, and computational techniques. MEMS/NEMS (Microelectromechanical system/ Nanoelectromechanical system) devices are sensitive to a wide range of stimuli such as temperature, mass, pressure and are thus extensively used as sensors in cars and mobile phones. The biggest promise of MEMS and NEMS technology is the development of extremely small sensor systems that can be used virtually everywhere and thus can impart intelligence to almost all man-made things.
