5 Results for 'MEMS'
Recent decades have seen rapid development in the manufacture of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) at the micrometer scale, mostly based on silicon wafer processing techniques, with characteristic length scales of millimeters to nanometers. However, standard MEMS techniques are often inappropriate for producing machines with complex 3D topologies and varied constituent materials at the mesoscale, at sizes...

Dr. Allen will be discussing his work with bioimplantable sensors based on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology, that can communicate information from within the body to guide medical treatment of disease. Examples of his work include a permanently-implantable sensor for chronic monitoring of endovascular blood pressure to allow titration of medication for patients with congestive heart...

Video/AnimationThe milliDelta RobotDelta Robots are comprised of three articulating arms connected to an output stage. They are extremely precise and agile, and can be used for “pick & place” and 3D Printing. Researchers at the Wyss Institute and Harvard SEAS have developed a millimeter-scale delta robot, the “milliDelta.” Possible applications at this scale include microassembly, micromanipulation, and...
