Example of a nanomechanical system: Molecularly sized gears

NanomechanicsEdit

Some of the mechanical aspects of nanotechnology is

  • Extreme Youngs modulus materials
  • High frequency resonances in nanoscale oscillators

NEMSEdit

Nano-electro-mechanical systems

Mechanics of beams and cantileversEdit

Cantilevers are essential in many mechanical systems: Nanotubes, nanowires and atomic force microscopes...

The harmonic oscillatorEdit

Fundamental in the description of any oscillating systems is the harmonic oscillator and the quantum mechanical version, the Quantum harmonic oscillator.
