Abstract : Advances in materials and fabrication processes are enabling miniaturization of functions, including gyroscopes, accelerometers, sensors, relays, oscillators, and logic devices, using Micro and Nano-scale Electro Mechanical Systems (M and NEMS). This project seeks to advance the understanding radiation effects on the relevant properties of the constituent materials and structures, particularly advanced 2D materials, and the implications for space and military applications.
