Dynamics of MEMS for mechanical computingApply
The dynamic behavior of micro-electromechanical systems MEMS devices will be simulated to achieve logic functions such as OR, AND gates. The project will require building a model for MEMS resonator and running computer simulations to help in the design of these resonators; so that they are eventually fabricated and tested. The project requires basic programming skills, which are commonly mastered at the undergrad level of engineering.
