Micro (and Nano) Mechanical Signal Processors

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009 @ 11:30 AM Sunil Bhave Location: White 411 With quality factors (Q) often exceeding 10,000, vibrating micromechanical resonators have emerged as leading candidates for on-chip versions of high-Q resonators used in wireless communication systems. However, as in the case for transistors, extending the frequency of MEMS resonators generally entails scaling of […]
