Research Highlights: 

The micro/nano engineering research group works on a wide spectrum of technological and scientific problems related to small-scale materials, devices, biological systems. The major research areas of the group include manufacturing, self-assembly, quantum mechanics simulation, and applications of nanomaterials; development of novel microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) for microfluidics, data storage, micro-optics, bio-sensory, medical diagnosis, atomic force microscopy (AFM), and energy harvesting; and fundamental studies of the single molecular level mechanics of DNA and protein molecules.
