This Fall’s MEMS@MIT Symposium takes a detailed look at New and Emerging Trends in Manufacturing of MEMS/NEMS. Eight MIT faculty members will discuss their manufacturing research. The Opening Session begins with a talk by Prof. Duane Boning, who will describe his programs on modeling of polymer microfluidic manufacturing methods. This is followed by Prof. Sang Kim who will describe assembly at the micro and nano-level. The first Morning Session will conclude with Prof. Bulovic describing methods for formation of nanostructured materials. In the second session of the morning, we will hear from three faculty members working extensively in the nano-domain. First, Prof. Berggren will describe innovative methods to achieve lithography beyond 10nm. Next, Prof. Kong highlights her work on CVD synthesis of nanotubes. Finally, the morning concludes with a presentation by Prof. Culpepper where he demonstrates technologies developed in his lab for manufacturing and manipulation at the micro and nano scale. The Afternoon Session will include two talks on assembly methods at the micro/nano level. Prof. Barbastathis will describe the use of Origami principles to achieve assembly, and Prof. Livermore will show methods for the selective self-assembly of micro and nano systems. We will conclude the symposium with a talk by Prof. Silvija Gradecak who will describe her work on the synthesis and application of semiconductor nanowires.
