Introducing plug-and-play nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS)
The group is led by Dr. Eva Weig, who is also a member of the Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM). The new work builds on their initial demonstration of an efficient electrical interface for nanomechanical resonators which was published in Nature in 2009. They now describe a fully integrated nanomechanical sensor platform that permits robust and sensitive detection of tiny displacements.
The work has been funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the FET-Open project QNEMS of the European Commission.
