course introduces the emerging field of nanoelectromechanical quantum circuits and systems (NEMX). The field derives
from exploiting progress in techniques for fabricating, down to nanometer-length scales, free-standing device structures
that incorporate mechanical motion and that may be designed to perform a variety of functions, such as employed in
electronics, RF/microwaves and, in particular, mechanical and mixed domain. The ability to create these nanomechanical
structures, in turn, brings within our reach a tremendous possibility for both creating superior implementations of
conventional circuits and systems, as well as entirely new ones. Since novel quantum mechanical effects, for instance,
quantized heat flow, manifestation of charge discreteness, and the quantum electrodynanical (QED) Casimir effect,
become operative in this regime, exciting new paradigms for circuit modeling and design must be invoked in order to
fully exploit the potential of this technology in sensing, computation, and signal processing applications.
Key markets of potential applicability include:
Cell Phones, Terrestrial and Satellite Communications, Computers, Anti-Terrorism, Military, Instrumentation Equipment,
Who Should Attend?
Advanced undergraduate/graduate engineering and physics students, R&D scientists & engineers.
This course aims at getting interested parties informed on:
- Motivation behind NEMX
- The fundamentals Physics of NEMX Devices
- Fundamental applications of NEMX
- Opportunities for NEMX Insertion in a Variety of Applications
