PhD position in multi-scale modeling for robust-design of vibrating micro sensors

 The project

This project aims at improving the efficiency of the manufacturing process of MEMS while decreasing the production cost by considering at the design stage the uncertainties in such a way that a range of the MEMS properties can be predicted for the manufactured products, which will be immune to factors that could adversely affect performance. This approach is called robust design and it is focused on achieving target reliability.

Webinar: How Can IntelliSuite v8.7 Benefit MEMS Research and Teaching

IntelliSuite was the first MEMS-specific CAD tool and has been under
development for over 20 years.  In this free webinar, understand how this
industry-standard software can help MEMS designers, process engineers,
and professors save time and costs in the development cycle, share their
designs with others, and teach students about MEMS. The webinar will
cover: process development using virtual fabrication tools, etch recipe
development using process simulators, design rule checking and
cross-sectioning tools for MEMS layout, design exploration and
optimization using behavioral and parametric modeling, recent
developments in automated meshing algorithms, discussion of coupled
FEM-BEM solvers for MEMS multiphysics analysis, linking MEMS models to

Journal Club Theme of August 2011: Energy Harvesting Using Soft Materials

Energy harvesting is the process of converting energy that will otherwise be dissipated into the ambient environment, into useful energy to do work.  I shall focus this discussion on motion-based energy harvesting.  Motion-based energy harvesting is the process of converting dissipated mechanical energy into electrical energy.  Sources of mechanical energy include the ocean waves, wind, human motion, vehicular traffic, and vibrations in buildings and bridges.  This source of energy is ubiquitous and pervasive, and yet, it is one of the least developed energy harvesting technology.

Journal Club January 2010: MEMS-based Instrumentation for Experimental Nanomechanics

Welcome to the January 2010 issue! In the issue of May 2007 , Prof. Xiaodong Li outlined the existing experimental methods for mechanical characterization of 1D nanostructures. In this issue, I will discuss along the same line but focus on experimental methods enabled by microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).

Symmetry breaking, snap-through, and pull-in instabilities under dynamic loading of microelectromechanical shallow arches

Arch-shaped microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have been used as mechanical memories, micro-relays, micro-valves, optical switches, and digital micro-mirrors. A bi-stable structure, such as an arch, is characterized by a multivalued load deflection curve.

Measurements of near-ultimate strength for multiwalled carbon nanotubes and irradiation-induced crosslinking improvements

For more than 15 years, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been the flagship material of nanotechnology. Researchers have conceived applications for nanotubes ranging from microelectronic devices to cancer therapy. Their atomic structure should, in theory, give them mechanical and electrical properties far superior to most common materials.
