MEMS, NEMS, and Nano

The MEMS/NEMS/Nano Research Cluster in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Stevens applies various principles of Mechanical Engineering to research questions in the emerging areas of nano- and microscale science and technology with applications in the energy, biomedical, materials, defense, environmental, and security sectors. Research areas include nano- and micro-electrical-mechanical systems, nano/microfabrication, fabrication and characterization of advanced nanomaterials, nanomaterial-based sensors, polymer nanocomposites, nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, multiscale robotics, and nano- and microfluidics.

Current research activities include:

This area is inter- and multidisciplinary by nature and is often characterized by strong collaborations with research groups inside and outside of the department. These research activities contribute to the Multiscale Engineering, Science & Technology Research Thrust at Stevens. They are supported by the Stevens Nanotechnology Graduate Program and the multiuser MicroDevice Laboratory (MDL) and Laboratory for Multiscale Imaging (LMSI) facilities at Stevens.
