Vision-based Microassembly of 3D Solid and Complex MEMS

The video shows an automatic assembly of fives silicon microparts of 400 µm x 400 µm x 100 µm on 3-levels. Each microassembly subtask is performed using a pose-based visual control which uses a CAD model-based tracker. The assembly clearance is estimated to 3 µm that allows to obtain solid and complex micro electromechanical structures […]

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 […]

optomechanical resonator

Optomechanical GHz Oscillator and Spectroscopy. Just like the spectral signature of materials originates from molecular vibrations, photonic devices have many spectral lines originating from their different mechanical modes. Our group has excited these modes using the radiation pressure produced by light circulating within the device (1, 2, 3) which oscillate regeneratively at controllable mechanical eigen-frequencies […]
