MNL: Micro Nano Characterization Laboratory

Lab Image: 

Micro Nano Characterization Laboratory (MNL) deals with the design, modeling and experimental characterization of nanomechanical systems (NEMS), microelectromechanical (MEMS), micro-optomechanical systems (MOEMS), medical micro devices as well as analog and radio frequency (RF) microelectonic circuitries. Design capabilities of the laboratory include Finite-element based physical modeling, equivalent system modeling, integrated-circuit design and lumped element mechanical modeling. Experimental characterization efforts at MNL focus on the vibration-amplitude measurement, dynamic characterization of micro-systems, high-frequency distributed parameter modeling, fiber-optic transmission systems.
