Mechanical Design of Microresonators Modeling and Applications by Nicolae Lobontiu

Mechanical Design of Microresonators Modeling and Applications


Mechanical Design of Microresonators Modeling and Applications by Nicolae Lobontiu

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.


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.

About the Author

Nicholae O. Lobontiu, Ph.D., is currently a professor at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. He is also a research associate and instructor at the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Cornell University. He has done extensive work in the areas of MEMS, monolithic hinges, and compliant mechanisms. Dr. Lobontiu is the author of two prior books on hinge-based compliant mechanisms and the mechanics of MEMS and has published numerous journal articles and has given several presentations on the subject of nano/micro system modeling and design.

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

Rachel Bridgeman

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

It's a lively, independent website with reviews, recommendations and more - with a huge range of books available to buy in all formats.

Alison Layland

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.
