As our knowledge of MEMS continues to grow, so does The MEMS Handbook. The field has changed so much that this Second Edition is now available in three volumes. Individually, each volume provides focused, authoritative treatment of specific areas of interest. Together, they comprise the most comprehensive collection of MEMS knowledge available, packaged in an attractive slipcase and offered at a substantial savings. This bestselling handbook is now more convenient than ever, and its coverage is unparalleled.

MEMS: Introduction and Fundamentals

The first volume covers the theoretical and conceptual underpinnings of the field, emphasizing the physical phenomena that dominate at the micro-scale. It also explores the mechanical properties of MEMS materials, modeling and simulation of MEMS, control theory, and bubble/drop transport in microchannels. Chapters were updated where necessary, and the book also includes two new chapters on microscale hydrodynamics and lattice Boltzmann simulations. This volume builds a strong foundation for further study and work in the MEMS field.

MEMS: Design and Fabrication

This second volume details the techniques, technologies, and materials involved in designing and fabricating MEMS devices. It begins with an overview of MEMS materials and then examines in detail various fabrication and manufacturing methods, including LIGA and macromolding, X-ray based fabrication, EFAB® technology, and deep reactive ion etching. This book includes three new chapters on polymeric-based sensors and actuators, diagnostic tools, and molecular self-assembly. It is a thorough guide to the important aspects of design and fabrication.

MEMS: Applications

This third volume offers a broad overview of current, emerging, and possible future MEMS applications. It surveys inertial sensors, micromachined pressure sensors, surface micromachined devices, microscale vacuum pumps, reactive control for skin-friction reduction, and microchannel heat sinks, among many others. Two new chapters discuss microactuators and nonlinear electrokinetic devices. This book is vital to understanding the current and possible capabilities of MEMS technologies.

In addition to seven new chapters, existing chapters were updated and expanded where necessary to reflect the current state of the field. In all, The MEMS Handbook, Second Edition comprises contributions from the foremost experts in their respective specialties from around the world. Acclaimed author and expert Mohamed Gad-el-Hak has again raised the bar to set a new standard for excellence and authority in the fledgling field of MEMS.
