Nanoelectromechanical sensors based on 2D materials – a review

Max Lemme and co-workers have recently published a review article on nanoelectromechanical (NEMS) sensors based on suspended two-dimensional (2D) materials in the journal RESEARCH, an open-access multidisciplinary journal launched in 2018 as the first journal in the Science Partner Journal (SPJ) program. The paper is an invited contribution to a special issue on “Progress and challenges in emerging 2D nanomaterials – preparation, processing, and device integration”, and has the purpose of contributing to the development of the field of 2D materials for sensor applications and to their integration with conventional semiconductor technology.
