Dear Colleagues,

Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) is a fast-expanding field with wide-rangingapplications, from lab-on-a-chip systems to new actuators to flexible devices. Microelec-tromechanical Systems have generated excitement because they offer novel and improvedfunctionality, as well as lower cost.

This special issue seeks to capture recent developments as well as shape futuredirections. Our goals are to demonstrate interesting, high-quality researches, to encouragethe MEMS community, to enhance the understanding of the challenges and opportunitiesin the field, and to inspire new approaches and ideas.

The topics covered include: microsensing, microactuation, micromechanical struc-tures, materials for microsystems, and the design and construction of MEMS. The dimen-sions of MEMS components typically range from nanometers to millimeters, and this field is sometimes referred to as NEMS as well as MEMS to emphasize that engineering on the scale of nanometers is included in the tiny world of today’s microsystems.

In the view of the recent advances in this exciting field, Vietnam Journal of Me-chanics will publish a special issue dedicated to MEMS. We invite papers in all areas ofMEMS and the diverse field of applications including communications, biomedical engi-neering, micro-optical systems, microfluidics, micropower generators and storage devices,including but not limited to the following topics. Papers may be original contributions orreviews, and they may be experimental or theoretical.
