Optical coherence tomography (OCT) probes rely on MEMS micro-scanners to provide fast and reproducible scans covering as much area as possible. A popular choice of actuators employed in this role are electrothermal bimorph actuators. They comprise of two layers of different materials which are rigidly joined together. Differential expansion...

This thesis demonstrates a novel displacement sensor with photonic structure a micro ring resonator with a micro cantilever. This device uses the working principle of micro ring resonator and transfer the mechanical signal into optical signal. The goal of this project is to design, fabricate and measure such a device. Fabrication process is not...

This thesis details the design of a self-oscillating MEMS resonator as a pressure sensor. A bi-layer circular diaphragm with a single center perforation is used as a pressure sensitive membrane which measures the absolute pressure of the surrounding medium. A novel aspect of the proposed sensor is that the resonator is made to oscillate by an...

A mechanical system is an excellent choice for studying forces of varying magnitude. The force produces a displacement of the system under study. By measuring this displacement electrically or optically, the force can characterized. In this thesis, the displacement of a nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS) due to thermal energy is of interest. At...

Recently there has been an onset of fluidic filters fabricated using micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology. These filters, compared to conventional ones, are more accurate and precise due to the highly sophisticated techniques that are used to define and implement the separation mechanism. In order to contribute to this new field of...

This thesis is about an innovative application of nanoimprinting lithography in organic ferroelectric memories, which can achieve multi-bit data storage. Multi-bit data storage, defined here as storage of multiple bits in a single device cell, can potentially make higher density ferroelectric memory at a lower price. The idea is based on...

There is a large demand for an online sensor to monitor the quality of lubricating oils. By constant monitoring the engine oil quality, a better understanding of oil condition can be found. The information on oil condition will lead to a much more accurate determination of proper oil change time, while it also provides increased insight into the...

In this master thesis, a process to realize metal lines on the sidewall of high aspect ratio cavities is developed. As alternative to conventional photoresist, SU8 is used to define patterns on vertical sidewalls of deep cavities while maintaining compatibility with conventional IC processes. When transferring a pattern onto 3D structures,...
