Mechanical Design of Microresonators Modeling and Applications

by Nicolae Lobontiu

Mechanical Design of Microresonators Modeling and Applications Synopsis

A rigorous approach that employs structural/ mechanical design principles to solve the reliability problems in Microresonators. Resonators act as a frequency reference or to filter specific frequencies. Used in such products as cell phones or computers, resonators will allow the user to take advantage of high bandwidths to process and send greater amounts of data. When used in medical devises such as MRIs they can detect microorganisms and biological molecules. The dilemma that Researcher face when building these micro resonators is that the smaller a resonator gets the less reliable it becomes. Based on his research at Cornell University, the author employs current modeling and fabrication technologies to bring a solution to this seemingly insurmountable problem one step closer.

Mechanical Design of Microresonators Modeling and Applications Press Reviews

Omar Manasreh, Ph.D., Professor and Series Editor: With the clarifications provided by the book author, I believe the book is relevant to the book series. The new title is appropriate for the subject. Noting that in addition to the design and modeling, the author pledged to provide examples from the real world. Examples: STM and AFM will be discussed in the book. This would be a platform form moving on from micro- to nano-world. My recommendation is that you offer a contract to this proposed book as it is a good addition to the book series.
