Photonic MEMS: Vibration at the nano-scale (a)

Here we see how an electrical field applied by light can compress material to excite mechanical vibration. We replace metal electrodes with the electrical field that light applies to create a train of virtual electrodes that are almost exactly 250 nm apart. These virtual electrodes act collectivity to excite a mechanical mode, illustrated above, that […]

The first MEMS micro motor experiment in Thailand (Pittaya Deekla SUT-SLRI on 07-Nov-2009)

This video shows the first micro motor experiment in Thailand performed on Saturday 7 th November 2009. This electrostatically driven micro motor had a rotor with a diameter of 0.88 millimeters. It consisted of 8 poles driven by 12 stator poles. It was fabricated by synchrotron x-ray lithography technique at micromachining lab, the Synchrotron Light […]

The smallest image of Barack Obama ever made

The video explains how the smallest image (to date…) of Barack Obama was made. It is about 8µm in width which is about 1/10 of the diameter of a human hair. It was milled on a silicon piece. It was made in Ottawa, Canada with an NVision, the dual column microscope from Carl Zeiss. The […]

    Nanotechnology’s Big Impact

    In the first ChemMatters video, we find about why the very smallest machines, known as nanotechnology, hold very big promise. Nanotechnology may help create tiny devices that bring medicine exactly where it needs to go in your body, powerful computers the size of a grain of sand or vital new sources of energy. ChemMatters, the […]

    MEMS-based clamp with a passive hold function for precision position retaining of micro manipulators

    The goal was to design, model and fabricate a precision MEMS-based clamp with a relatively large clamping force. The purpose of the clamp is to mechanically fix a six degrees of freedom (DOFs) MEMS-based sample manipulator once the sample has been positioned in all DOFs. The clamping force is generated by a rotational electrostatic comb-drive […]
