This Special Issue, entitled “Instability Phenomena and Complex Responses in Electrically-Actuated Microbeam-Based MEMS”, aims at collecting major contributions on the interface among nonlinear dynamics, vibrations, and Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS). Countless applications, which range from sensing to actuation, make use of electrically-actuated microbeams to gain superior performances. Because of this background, their design, optimization, and control deserve detailed investigations, as well as a correct assessment of the actual dynamic capacity.
This Special Issue aims to collect papers having the common feature of involved non-linear aspects and complex phenomena.
Contributions with new methodological approaches, modelling, theoretical analyses are of major interest for this Special Issue. The gather of manuscripts collects and updates the most relevant knowledge on the topic, gaining microbeam-based MEMS to exceptional mechanical and motion characteristics.Prof. Dr. Stefano Lenci

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Actuators is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
