About the MEMS Reference Shelf:
The MEMS Reference Shelf is a series devoted to Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS), which combine mechanical, optical, or fluidic elements on a common microfabricated substrate to create sensors, actuators, and microsystems. This series strives to provide a framework where basic principles, known methodologies, and new applications are integrated in a coherent and consistent manner.
