In this Special Issue we wish to focus on the use of nanomaterials in MEMS and NEMS. We encourage reviews where nanomaterials have already made a significant contribution in this area: for example, increased functionality, novel processing or new areas of application, etc. We are particularly interested in papers which an application bias, especially comparison is made with other materials systems in MEMS and NEMS. Articles on design, fabrication, characterization and testing of MEMS/NEMS will be welcome. Articles exploring future leading edge opportunities are also welcome, where new materials may yet make an impact. The overall aim of this Special Issue is to provide a timely "snap-shot" of this exciting area, of value to technologists, scientists and innovators alike.
