Parametric Oscillation with Wineglass Disk Resonators

2018

Parametric oscillation provides another avenue to excite micro electro-mechanical resonators into oscillation. Rather than driving the resonator at its resonant frequency, modulating the stiffness of the resonator forces this motion. While this technique can lead to failures, it also can provide methods for frequency division, phase noise reduction, and sustaining oscillations of various frequency with a single amplifier. This work models the voltage conditions for parametric oscillation and compares them to measured results with an accuracy of 15%. Discrepancies caused by...

BPN882: An Ultra-Thin Molecular Imaging Skin for Intraoperative Cancer Detection Using Time-Resolved CMOS Sensors

Hossein Najafi
2021

Successful treatment of cancer requires targeted and individualized treatment, and subsequently an assessment of the state of the tumor being examined, both gross and microscopic, however oncologists have no method of identifying microscopic tumor in the patient. This results in tumor cells being left behind in patients undergoing surgery. Currently, the only way to determine the presence of any microscopic residual is to examine the excised tumor, stained with a proper marker, under a microscope, which only adds to the complexity and length of the surgery and treatment. The two current...

Accelerometers which are sensitive to inputs perpendicular to the substrate (2-Axis) are the key to monolithic three axis acceleration sensing. The inherent asymmetry of the capacitive interface of the Z-Axis sensing element fabricated in surface micromachining technology with a single...

Frequency Modulated Gyroscopes

2013

MEMS gyroscopes for consumer devices, such as smartphones and tablets, suffer from high power consumption and drift which precludes their use in inertial navi- gation applications. Conventional MEMS gyroscopes detect Coriolis force through measurement of very small displacements on a sense axis, which requires low-noise, and consequently high-power, electronics. The sensitivity of the gyroscope is im- proved through mode-matching, but this introduces many other problems, such as low bandwidth and unreliable scale factor. Additionally, the conventional Coriolis force detection method...
