Spherical Micro Resonator by UC Irvine MicroSystems Laboratory

UCI MicroSystems Laboratory (http://mems.eng.uci.edu/) are focused on development of MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) sensors and actuators based on novel design concepts. Current research projects on Conventional and 3D MEMS Inertial Sensors (gyroscopes and accelerometers) involve design, modeling, fabrication, characterization, control system and sensing electronics design, and integration of advanced sensor systems. In this video we demonstrate […]

Photonic MEMS: Vibrating at the nano-scale (b)

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 […]

Smartdust (M.E.M.S.) Micro Electro Mechanical Sensors

Smartdust (M.E.M.S.) Micro Electro Mechanical Sensors http://tankerenemy.blogspot.com/2009/11/exposure-to-aerial-emissions-of-nano.html ******** I centri meteo ed i militari diffondono (per via aerea) in atmosfera, polvere intelligente (di nanodimensioni). Queste M.E.M.S., oltre ad inquinare cibo, acqua, terreno etc., vengono inalate, bevute, ingerite e provocano diverse patologie nuove ed incurabili (inibizione della Colinesterase). Ovviamente c’è chi nega, ma esistono documenti (e […]

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 […]
