An Advanced Materials for Micro- and Nano-Systems Summer Session 2006 - Mechanics of Inorganic and Organic Thin Films and Small-Volume Structures

Mechanics of Inorganic and Organic Thin Films and Small-Volume Structures


10 - 14 July 2006

Morning session from 9.00am - 12:15pm
Afternoon session from 2.00pm - 4.45pm

Lecture Theatre 3, National University of Singapore

The processing and design of materials for micro- and nano-systems require an understanding of the unique mechanical properties of small structures: thin films, nano-structures, cells, and even individual molecules. The past ten years have seen the development of new tools for modeling and characterizing the mechanics of small structures; these tools are now applied to inorganic and organic materials and structures used in microelectronic, micromagnetic, and microphotonic devices and systems, as well as to biological systems.

This intense one-week course builds on a basic knowledge of mechanics of materials and equips engineers to design and work with materials for future applications in nano- and bio-technology.
