Area 11

Micro/Nano Electromechanical and Bio-Systems
(Chair: H. Tabata, Osaka Univ.)

This session focuses on micro/nano electrnomechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS) and their applications, such as biosensors. Bio-M/NEMS devices are widely applied to biochemical, medical, and environmental fields in which many devices are studied, such as biochips, micro-TAS, lab on a chip, etc. Interdisciplinary research of microelectronic devices with materials and technique in the chemical, biological, and medical fields is expected to open the door to new scientific and business fields. Papers are solicited in the following areas (but are not limited to these areas): (1) micro/nano electromechanical systems (M/NEMS) for RF, optical, power and biomaterial fields, and others; (2) micro-TAS and lab on a chip; (3) various biochips and sensors; (4) fabrication technologies and surface/interface modification techniques, such as SAM for micro-TAS and/or biochips; and (5) new integrated micro/nanosystems for biochemical and medical applications.
