In NS&NS Lab, we are working on the development of miniaturized, low-power and high-performance sensors and radio frequency components. We focus on understanding and exploiting the fundamental properties of micromechanical structures and advanced nanomaterials to engineer new classes of micro- and nano-electromechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS) with unique and enabling features applied to the areas of chemical, physical and biological sensing and low power reconfigurable radio communication systems.
Dr. Rinaldi is currently seeking brilliant and self-motivated graduate students to join his group. Please feel free to contact him if you have interests in conducting experimental work in the broad area of MEMS/NEMS devices!
