“Good vibrations” - Advanced sensors based on nanomechanical resonators
Speaker:Schmid Silvan (TU Wien, Institute of Sensor and Actuator Systems, Micro and Nanosensors )
Abstract:Pressure sensors, accelerometers, gyroscopes, electronic filters, and Lab-on-a-chip devices are just a few of the most prominent examples of Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS). MEMS have become omnipresent helpers by making our phones and cars smart and reducing analysis times in modern medical laboratories. Nanoelectromechanical Systems (NEMS) are the little sibling of MEMS. By downscaling the sensing elements from the micro- to the nanoscale, NEMS exhibit unprecedented sensitivities. As a particular achievement, such nanomechanical resonators have created a revolutionary new field of quantum optomechanics, which has enabled quantum mechanical experiments with “macroscopic” devices. Since its beginning two decades ago, NEMS research has been driven mainly by applications in metrology and fundamental science. In our Micro and Nanosensors Group we conduct NEMS research with focus on ad
