Micro and Nano Engineering

Micro and Nano Engineering encompasses fabrication, characterization, design and modeling of small structures and devices, and their integration into engineered systems. When dimensions shrink unique properties can result such that the fundamentals of thermo-physical processes deviate from traditional macroscopic behavior.

The Mission of the Micro and Nano Engineering Group is to create new engineering knowledge and products at the nano- and microscale. The focus of efforts is to explore new nano- and micro-manufacturing methods and new material and system properties enabled by nano- and micro-scale phenomena, to educate students about micro- and nano-technology and to identify important problems that can benefit from micro- and nano-engineering.

Laboratory facilities include chemical and physical vapor deposition, impedance spectroscopy, sensor characterization tools and AFM microscopes, all of which are available at UCRF of UNIST.
