Vagus nerve stimulation serves as an approach to manage drug-resistant epilepsy. Focused ultrasound stands out as a unique tool, offering a non-invasive modality for VNS. With its excellent depth of penetration and sub-millimeter focusing capabilities in soft tissue, ultrasound allows for precise targeting of the vagus nerve without the need for...

Integrating compliant mechanisms into high-precision motion systems has facilitated the development of lightweight and frictionless designs. However, these systems often face challenges related to low-frequency parasitic resonance modes and limited structural damping, leading to compromised position accuracy and restricted control bandwidth....

Under in-plane compressive load conditions, the growth of a delamination initially induced by an impact can be followed by a fast growth after a threshold level, which leads to a catastrophic failure in composite structures. To avoid reaching this critical level, it is essential to uncover the delamination size and growth pattern in real time....

Acousto-ultrasonic composite transducers (AUCT), which are made of piezoceramic materials embedded in a reinforced polymeric matrix, are promising for the health monitoring of composite structures. However, when they are integrated into highly loaded thermoplastic composite structures, ensuring proper joining properties is a challenge. The...

Synchronized ac-dc rectifiers are widely used for energy rectification in piezoelectric energy harvesting (PEH), which have to employ a bulky inductor or some dedicated flying capacitors for high energy conversion efficiency. This article proposes a synchronized switch harvesting on shared capacitors (SSHSC) rectifier achieving synchronized...

In the past decades, inductor-based synchronized switch harvesting on inductor (SSHI) rectifiers have been widely employed in many active rectification systems for piezoelectric energy harvesting. Although SSHI rectifiers achieve high energy extraction performance compared to passive full-bridge rectifier (FBR), the performance greatly...

Vibration suppression of flexible end-effectors has become one of the great challenges within the semiconductor industry to achieve the precision required to produce chips. These end-effectors tend to be prone to vibrations due to their lightweight design and low thickness, whilst they still should have high accuracy and precision. This...

Synchronized switch harvesting on inductor (SSHI) is an efficient active rectifier to extract energy generated from piezoelectric transducer in piezoelectric energy harvesting system. Unlike passive rectifiers, SSHI rectifiers require a power supply to drive synchronized switches. Unfortunately, there is no stable supply when the system starts...

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) aims to shift aircraft maintenance from a time-based to a condition-based approach. Within all the SHM techniques, Acoustic Emission (AE) allows for the monitoring of large areas by analyzing Lamb waves propagating in plate like structures. In this study, the authors proposed a Time Reversal (TR) methodology...

Damping vibrations of flexible structures is a subject of importance in several industries, as the aerospace and high-tech industry. Especially when the ratio of damping over weight needs to be high. In literature optimization of this ratio is achieved in several manners, through optimization of individual damping methods, ie. active and passive...

In this work, thin-film lithium niobate (LiNbO<sub>3</sub>) acoustic delay line (ADL) based oscillators are experimentally investigated for the first time for the application of single-mode oscillators and frequency comb generation. The design space for the ADL-based oscillator is first analyzed, illustrating that the key to low phase noise...

This paper demonstrates low-loss acoustic delay lines (ADLs) based on shear-horizontal waves in thin-film LiNbO <sub>3</sub> for the first time. Due to its high electromechanical coupling, the shear-horizontal mode is suited for producing devices with large bandwidths. Here, we show that shear-horizontal waves in LiNbO <sub>3</sub> thin...

This paper presents a power- and area-efficient approach to digitizing the echo signals received by piezoelectric transducer elements, commonly used for ultrasound imaging. This technique utilizes such elements not only as sensors but also as the loop filter of an element-level δσ analog to digital converter (ADC). The receiver chain is thus...
