Title: Nanoscale Machines: These Squeaky Wheels Will Get No Grease

Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) are an emerging, cutting-edge technology that relies on the microfabrication of small scale mechanical components (actuators, sensors, mirrors, etc.) and the inmore »tegration of those components with on-board electronic processing. Because MEMS devices must react to mechanical signals, many employ construction topologies that require physical motion and the concomitant lubrication which prevents heating/melting and wear of the device. This talk will address how knowledge of the fundamental origins of friction can be applied to MEMS technology, and vice versa.« less
