SSE 678 Micro/Nano Systems for Space Applications

(3-0-3) Spacecraft, especially for deep space exploration, are miniaturized significantly, calling for using smaller, more sensitive and multi-functional devices and systems. Micro/nano devises and systems play an essential role at delivering in a limited space functionality similar or equivalent to that of a larger spacecraft. This course introduces a number of representative micro/nano devices and systems used currently in spacecraft and their operating principles and characteristics.
