Applied Maths Seminar: Sader -- The Mechanics of Nanoscale Devices

John Sader, University of Melbourne 

The Mechanics of Nanoscale Devices 

Wednesday 14th Oct 14:05-14:55pm, Eastern Avenue Lecture Theatre.  

Nanomechanical sensors are often used to measure environmental changes with extreme
sensitivity.  Controlling the effects of surfaces and fluid dissipation presents
significant challenges to achieving the ultimate sensitivity in these devices.  In this
talk, I will give an overview of theoretical/experimental work we are undertaking to
explore the underlying physical processes in these systems.  The talk will be general
and aimed at introducing some recent developments in the field of nanomechanical
sensors.
