NSE 410: Nanosystems and Devices
Topics Covered in course
- Overview of micro/nanosystems and devices
- Thermal micro/nanosystems and devices
- Elastic micro/nanosystems and devices
- Coupled thermal-elastic micro/nanosystems and devices
- Coupled electrostatic-elastic micro/nanosystems and devices
- Micro/nanofluidic systems and devices
Students completing NSE 410 should be able to:
- define the major components in micro/nanosensors and micro/nanoactuators in micro/nanosystems and explain the scientific basis for many of their possible applications.
- assess the effects of scaling on various physical phenomena.
- perform simulation/modeling lab experiments using commercial software (e.g., Coventor, COMSOL, etc.) to design micro/nanosensors or actuators.
- make an oral presentation of a project on a micro/nanodevice or system design and modeling to a peer group of students.
- write clear, concise reports to document simulation lab experiments.
