  1. Piezoelectric Transducers: Strain Sensing and Energy Harvesting (and Frequency Tuning)

    15 Jun 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Toshikazu Nishida

    Acoustic pressure or mechanical force sensing via piezoelectric coupling is closely related to the harvesting of electrical energy from acoustical and mechanical energy sources. In this talk, mesoscale and microscale piezoelectric transducers for acoustic and vibrational sensing and energy...

  2. On the Cross Roads of Biology and Nanotechnology – Selective DNA Nanopore Sensors

    21 Mar 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Samir Iqbal

    The ability to manipulate and identify the properties of singlebiological molecules with the potential of characterizing biologicalprocesses at the most fundamental levels can significantly facilitaterapid diagnostics and therapeutics. Fabrication of solid-statedevices investigating bacteria,...

  3. SUGAR: the SPICE for MEMS

    21 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Jason Clark

    In this seminar, I present some design, modeling, and simulation features of a computer aided engineering tool for microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) called SUGAR. For experimental verification, I use a microdevice that is difficult to simulate with conventional MEMS software. I show that the...

  4. Toward Improving the Precision of Nanoscale Force-Displacement Measurements

    13 Mar 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Jason Clark

    Nanotechnology has great potential for being used to create better medicines, materials, and sensors. With increasing interest in nanotechnology to improve the quality of our lives, there has been an increasing use of nanoscience tools to measure force and displacement to understand nanoscale...

  5. Geometry of Diffusion and the Performance Limits of Nanobiosensors

    05 Dec 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam, Pradeep Ramachandran Nair

    This presentation demonstrates how the classical diffusion-capture (D-C) model has improved sensor performance, since the D-C model is a "geometry of diffusion" rather than a "geometry of electrostatics." A scaling law based on D-C is also posited; the scaling law resolves many classical puzzles...

  6. Jay Morreale

    Presently, a consultant working on proof of concept prototypes. Co-founded a start-up, Red Sky Systems, to make undersea transmission systems. Built telecom and optical networking hardware for...
