PiezoNEMS and PowerNEMS

Research & Innovation in PiezoResistive and PiezoElectric NanoElectroMechanicalSystems

NanoElectroMechanicalSystems (NEMS) are currently under development at IMEP-Lahc, a research institute in the Minatec Innovation Center, Grenoble-France. This website is dedicated to providing information on very advanced and innovative sensors and energy harvesters based on NEMS devices, from design,simulation and modeling, technology and characterization, up to prototypes. Applications are such as autonomous systems, powernems, pressure sensors, spirometers, health portable devices.
