Title of the Talk:NanoMEMS: Enabling the Internet of Things

ABSTRACT

NanoMEMS exploits the convergence between nanotechnology and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) brought about by advances in the ability to fabricate nanometer-scale electronic and mechanical device structures. While the "Nano" aspect of this field is still in its early stages, and is not expected to reach maturity until well into the 21st century, its "MEMS" aspect is a topic of much current and near-term impact in, for instance, inertial sensing, biomedicine, optical, RF/Wireless communications, and energy harvesting. In this context, we will begin this talk by discussing the fundamentals of NanoMEMS, in particular, as it relates to its most speculative and futuristic paradigms and applications, and then will focus on emerging applications that are poised to enable the exploding Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm.
