Design and Optimization of MEMS Sensors and Actuators

Piezoelectric and magnetostrictive materials are key design components in transducers, sensors, actuators, and resonators. To accurately model these devices, the multiphysics interaction between the piezoelectric, structural, and dielectric or conductive materials in the same device must be accounted for. In this webinar, you will learn how to model microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors and actuators for a wide range of purposes.
