Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are an active and exciting area of research and industrial applications. A suite of fabrication techniques exist today that allow devices to be constructed with features that range in size from nanometers to millimeters. This short-course is designed to provide an overview of MEMS fabrication, commercial MEMS products, and areas of on-going research.

The course is organized into two 2.5 hour sessions. The first session will provide an overview of microfabrication techniques including thin-film processing, surface and bulk micromachining, and packaging techniques. The second session will discuss commercial MEMS applications and areas of on-going research in MEMS and Nanotechnology including MEMS sensors, optical devices, polymer fabrication, microfluidics, lab-on-a-chip, and nanomaterials.
