MEMS Journal Club Announcement for the Princeton Area

The Princeton MEMS Journal Club provides a forum for people interested in Micromechanics and MEMS and MST and Micro and Nano technology to meet, discuss problems of general interest, and hear presentations by experts in the field.  The Journal Club usually meets in the evening about once a month and is hosted by a company or university interested in MEMS.  Meetings are held in the New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut (USA) area.
