- The term “NEMS,” or “Nanoelectromechanical Systems,” is used to describe devices integrating mechanical and electrical functionality on the nanoscale.
- Uses include accelerometers, or chemical detectors of substances in the air.
- North America leads the overall NEMS market.
According to a new market research report “Nanoelectromechanical Systems (NEMS) Market (2012 – 2022) by Applications (STM/AFM, Medical, Gas/Flow Sensor, RF), Products (Switches, Cantilevers), Components (Nanotubes, Nanowires, Nanofilms), Materials (Graphene, ZnO, SiC, GaN, SiO2)” published by MarketsandMarkets, the total market is expected to reach $108.88 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 29.69% from 2012 to 2022.
The term “NEMS,” or “Nanoelectromechanical Systems,” is used to describe devices integrating mechanical and electrical functionality on the nanoscale. NEMS form the logical next step of miniaturization from MEMS devices. NEMS typically integrate transistor-like nanoelectronics with mechanical actuators, pumps, or motors, and may thereby form chemical, biological, and physical sensors.
The name is derived from typical device dimensions in the nanometer range, leading to low mass, 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. Uses include accelerometers, or chemical detectors of substances in the air.
