Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), such as actuators, sensors and resonators, rely on the interactions between multiple physical effects. In this webinar we will show how a multiphysics simulation approach allows you to combine electrical, thermal and structural effects accurately in order to design reliable and high-performance MEMS devices. The webinar will include a demonstration showing how to use COMSOL Multiphysics for modeling MEMS devices, and will conclude with a Q&A session.
