Nanomechanics Edit

Some of the mechanical aspects of nanotechnology is

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


Nano-electro-mechanical systems

Mechanics of beams and cantilevers Edit

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

The harmonic oscillator Edit

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