Nano- and Microtechnology

  title={Nano- and Microtechnology},
  author={Mohamed Saafi and Peter L. Romine},
This article provides an overview of nano-electromechanical (NEMS) and micro-electromechanical (MEMS) systems and discusses ongoing research activities exploring potential applications for these systems. Advances in nano- and microtechnology have made it possible to manufacture small, intelligent, low-cost wireless devices that can be placed in concrete during mixing to provide real-time monitoring of workability and early-age properties. These devices also have potential application in… CONTINUE READING
