Nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) are electromechanical systems with nanometer dimensions operated in their resonant modes and are of interest to both - technical and scientific areas. In this size regime, extremely high resonant frequencies and small active masses can be achieved; the quality factors of resonance (Q) of NEMS being in the range of 103 to 105. These attributes collectively make NEMS suitable for a multitude of technological applications such as ultrafast sensors, actuators and signal procssing components.
NEMS, i.e. "Nanoelectromechanical Systems", are used for the devices integrating mechanical and electrical functionality on the nanoscale. NEMS is the advanced level of miniaturization after MEMS devices. NEMS includes various devices like sensors, actuators, gears, accelerometers, cantilevers, tweezers, and many other nano devices. Different properties of the NEMS-based devices, which makes them unique are low mass, high electrical strength, high mechanical resonance frequencies, potentially large quantum mechanical effects such as zero point motion and a high surface-to-volume ratio useful for surface-based sensing mechanisms.
NEMS-based devices are mostly preferred over the MEMS for the tips used in the Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) and Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). The major reasons behind the use of NEMS for the production of microscopic tips are the less switching time and low effective mass. NEMS are expected to be used for the random access memories due to the low switching time and high data storage capacity.
