Outbreaks of bacteria have caused many problems over the last few years and are a major public health concern. Bacteria are now affecting our lives in many ways to a more severe extent, from contaminated food in markets to polluted water. There are some devices available which detect bacteria, however, all of them can only be used in the lab...

Neural stimulation is an established treatment methodology for an increasing number of diseases. Electrical Stimulation injects a stimulation signal through electrodes that are implanted in the target area of the central or peripheral nervous system in order to evoke a specific neuronal response that suppresses or treats pathological activity....

The American Cancer Society reported that the major public health problem is cancer. Based on the report, colonic cancer is the major cancer type in the digestive system. In addition, the percentage of death rate due to this cancer is 50%. Surgery to remove the part of the colon infected by the cancer and then reconnect the healthy one is called...

This thesis investigates a novel deformable mirror that works on the basis of the electrostatic deformation of a liquid surface. The liquid mirror allows large surface displacements, a large number of actuators, and the modification of its properties, while at the same time the mirror design is simple and may be realized without sophisticated...

This dissertation aims to advance the current state of cantilevers with integrated metal thermal and deflection sensing elements. Metallic sensing elements enable the use of alternative substrate materials (such as polymers), that tend to exhibit higher compliance properties and are more robust (less brittle) compared to Si or Si3N4 cantilevers....

Packaging has evoluted for years with the sole purpose of protecting the electronics from the environment and providing a suitable operating environment. Integration became a necessity and technologies as System-in-Package emerged and enabled the integration of components built with different technologies within a single package. All this...

This thesis studies the effects of scaling on the characterisation and readout of micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS) to nano-electro mechanical systems (NEMS). In particular it focuses on cantilever, which is a basic device building block and an important transducer in many sensing applications. This thesis presents an overview of major...

Research in the field of Micro/nanofluidics has been extensively carried out for the last few years. With the available technological advancements today many complex systems can be fabricated in a more efficient and simpler way. Conventional methods in a laboratory consumes a lot of time, chemicals and in turn generates a lot of waste unlike the...

HEALTHCARE in the 21st century is changing rapidly. In advanced countries, in particular, healthcare is moving from a public to a more personalized nature. However, the costs of healthcare worldwide are increasing every year. Better use of technology can and should be used to get control of these costs. At the same time, implants have clearly...

The potential of light in diagnosis and therapy has been long recognised. With the advent of scientific progress in our understanding of light propagation and interaction with tissue and parallel major technological advances in how optical energy can be generated, detected and processed, this potential is being realised. Linking with this trend,...

There was an explosive growth in the bioprocess industry market during the last decade. The tight control of these processes is often very critical in order to optimize the process efficiency or even achieve the right product. Capillary electrophoresis (CE) system is a good option for process monitoring and controlling, since it has already been...

New emerging sensing applications demand novel sensors in micro-/nano-scale to enable integration and embedding into higher level structures or systems. Downsizing the structure will usually decrease the sensitivity of the sensors, since the sensitivity is a function of geometrical parameters, e.g. mass in the case of inertial sensing, and...

The wavefront measurement is an important part both in adaptive optics and in optical shop testing. A number of wavefront sensors based on interferometric or on Hartmann principle is known; this thesis investigates particular technologies that can help to increase the accuracy and/or speed of existing wavefront sensors either by optimising the...

This thesis presents various aspects regarding the development of an ultrasound sensor systems for use in laparoscopic intervention. The accuracy achieved after using compensation technique for air flow disturbances or temperature variations remains in a convenient range of 200µm. Considering this high accuracy, the flexibility and the...

Modal wavefront correctors are active optical components for the compensation of aberrated optical wavefronts in a smooth and continuous way. They are traditionally represented by membrane and continuous faceplate deformable mirrors. This thesis is dedicated to the investigation and development of modal wavefront correctors based on nematic...

This thesis deals with the dry etching of deep anisotropic microstructures in monocrystalline silicon by high-density plasmas. High aspect ratio trenches are necessary in the fabrication of sensitive inertial devices such as accellerometers and gyroscopes. The etching of silicon in fluorine-based plasmas is isotropic. To obtain anisotropy the...
