Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The advancements in MEMS actuators and their applications in the past years have considerably accelerated and continue to do so at the forefront of technology. New advancements in diverse applications, ranging from physics to medicine, continue to climb the technology readiness ladder, with very promising fundamental advancements leading to exciting technical applications.    

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a forum for colleagues to publish recent research results related to the frontiers of MEMS actuators and their applications. These include topics such as the following:   

  • Fundamental advances in microactuator technologies. 
  • Material used for microactuation.
  • Innovative microactuation methods and advances in current actuation methods.
  • Advances in process and fabrication technologies for microactuators.
  • Simulation and modeling of microactuators.
  • Control issues and mechatronics in microactuators.
  • Smart circuits for microactuators.
  • Advances in optical, chemical, and biomicroactuators.
  • Advancements and novel methods in the characterization, calibration, and testing of microactuators.
  • Innovative instrumentation for the characterization, calibration, and testing of microactuators.  
  • Improvements in the repeatability, reliability, and lifetime of microactuators.
  • New applications of microactuators.
  • Any other topics related to microactuators.
