CAD Tools for Co-simulation and Modelling of MEMS Devices, Associated Electronics and Packaging-Part TwoSubmitted by BShiari on Thu, 2012-04-19 09:39.
Date: April 24, 2012; Time: 12:00 - 1:00 pm (EDT)
IntelliSuite was the first MEMS-specific CAD tool and has been under
development for over 20 years. In this free webinar, understand how this
industry-standard software can help MEMS designers, process engineers,
and professors save time and costs in the development cycle, share their
designs with others, and teach students about MEMS. The webinar will
cover: process development using virtual fabrication tools, etch recipe
development using process simulators, design rule checking and
cross-sectioning tools for MEMS layout, design exploration and
optimization using behavioral and parametric modeling, recent
developments in automated meshing algorithms, discussion of coupled
FEM-BEM solvers for MEMS multiphysics analysis, linking MEMS models to

I am looking for a postdoctoral position. I have expeience in finite element modeling and laboratory measurements of ultrasonic waves in ferroelectric and piezoelectric plates, piezoelectric transducers and actuators, MEMs. Also worked in the field of computational electromagnetics. Please look at the attached resume.
I would like to bring your attention to the contest on "Modeling and Simulation of Nano/Microsystems" at the University of Michigan. This is an international competition.
Energy harvesting is the process of converting energy that will otherwise be dissipated into the ambient environment, into useful energy to do work. I shall focus this discussion on motion-based energy harvesting. Motion-based energy harvesting is the process of converting dissipated mechanical energy into electrical energy. Sources of mechanical energy include the ocean waves, wind, human motion, vehicular traffic, and vibrations in buildings and bridges. This source of energy is ubiquitous and pervasive, and yet, it is one of the least developed energy harvesting technology.
Welcome to the January 2010 issue! In the issue of May 2007 , Prof. Xiaodong Li outlined the existing experimental methods for mechanical characterization of 1D nanostructures. In this issue, I will discuss along the same line but focus on experimental methods enabled by microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).
The Lurie Nanofabrication Facility (LNF) is the University of Michigan site of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) and is hiring a new domain expert in computation and modeling.
Develop and coordinate computational modeling and simulation capabilities for users of the LNF. Focus on capabilities related to MEMS/NEMS, including micro and nano fluidics devices and structures.
Support the needs of LNF community in terms of computational modeling and simulation of MEMS/NEMS devices and structures covering multiple domains involving mechanical, thermal, fluidic, and electronic signals.
Symmetry breaking, snap-through, and pull-in instabilities under dynamic loading of microelectromechanical shallow archesSubmitted by kaushik das on Fri, 2009-08-07 09:06.
Arch-shaped microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have been used as mechanical memories, micro-relays, micro-valves, optical switches, and digital micro-mirrors. A bi-stable structure, such as an arch, is characterized by a multivalued load deflection curve. Here we study the symmetry breaking, the snap-through instability, and the pull-in instability of a bi-stable arch shaped MEMS under static and dynamic electric loads.<!--break--> Unlike a mechanical load, the electric load is a nonlinear function of the a priori unknown deformed shape of the arch.

Measurements of near-ultimate strength for multiwalled carbon nanotubes and irradiation-induced crosslinking improvementsSubmitted by Horacio Espinosa on Thu, 2008-08-14 20:23.
For more than 15 years, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been the flagship material of nanotechnology. Researchers have conceived applications for nanotubes ranging from microelectronic devices to cancer therapy. Their atomic structure should, in theory, give them mechanical and electrical properties far superior to most common materials.
