The thermal-piezoresistive effect in silicon (Si) has attracted great attention toward high-performance resonant devices but still faces major challenges for harsh environment applications. Instead of using Si, this paper, for the first time, reports a thermal-piezoresistive resonator based on a silicon carbide-on-insulator (SiCOI) platform. The...

Fabricating high-aspect-ratio (HAR) structures with silicon carbide (SiC) is a challenging task. This paper presents a silicon carbide (SiC) reinforced vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNT) composite as a promising candidate to fabricate HAR MEMS devices for harsh environment applications. The use of a VACNT array allows the fast...

This work presents the design and characterization of an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with silicon carbide (SiC) for sensing applications in harsh environments. The SiC-based ADC is implemented with the state-of-the-art low-voltage SiC complementary-metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology developed by Fraunhofer IISB. Two types of...

Sensors are extremely valuable to this world. Without sensors, we would not be able to live as we do in this data-driven environment. Therefore, finding new ways to measure the matter around us is a continuous process. In this work, an addition to the new sensors is attempted, using materials that can withstand the most extreme circumstances....

We explain the design and analysis of a novel voxel design with the goal of reducing assembly time and complexity of the robot-material system. Recent advances in robot-material systems, on the other hand, have focused on mechanical properties, design, and production methods. Making it possible to create cellular structures in harsh and remote...

Oil spills are environmental pollution events that occur due to natural disasters or human activities, resulting in a liquid petroleum hydrocarbon release in the environment, especially into the marine ecosystem. Once oil spills happen, they cause detrimental consequences to the environment, living organisms, and humans. Although there are...

Temperature sensors that can operate in high-temperature and harsh environments are highly desired. However, this is a great challenge for sensing materials to operate under extreme working conditions because of oxidation and/or corrosion at high temperature. In this study, polymer-derived SiAlCN ceramics were prepared as sensing materials to...

The application of pressure sensors in harsh environments is typically hindered by the stability of the material over long periods of time. This work focuses on the design and fabrication of surface micromachined Pirani gauges which are designed to be compatible with state-of-the-art Silicon Carbide CMOS technology. Such an integrated...

Interactions in the real world are subject to mistakes and miscommunications. The presence of this noise in interactions challenges cooperation, as one party cannot determine whether the other party did not cooperate on purpose. The Prisoner's Dilemma has commonly been used to study mutual cooperation. Strategies like Tit for Tat that do well in...

In harsh, spatial versions of the prisoner’s dilemma, a stable ratio between cooperators and defectors is sometimes reached quickly, whereas for other runs<br/>the variability of this ratio is much higher. This paper explores different patterns of this ratio over time, and compares factors that may influence these patterns. A measure based on...

In the coming decade, the development in the area of More than Moore will certainly take over from Moore’s Law. Sensor development and sensor integration will prevail above lower node development. New packaging solutions will be developed which will fuel the integration of sensors. These developments can still be silicon based but where harsh...

Degradation mechanisms of silicone plates under harsh environment conditions are studied in this investigation. Environmental degradation of silicone free form, used as secondary optics in Light Emitting Diode LED lighting lamps and luminaires or any other applications requiring high quality optics being used, has negative implications for the...

High reliable packaging materials are needed for electronics when they work at harsh environments. Among which, the nanosilver material has been widely studied and applied in power electronics due to its low processing temperature and high reliability. This paper investigates the bonding properties of nanosilver sintered hermetic cavity. There...

Microsystems are increasingly being applied in harsh and/or inaccessible environments, but many markets expect the same level of functionality for long periods of time. Harsh environments cover areas that can be subjected to high temperature, (bio)-chemical and mechanical disturbances, electromagnetic noise, radiation, or high vacuum. In the...

Thin layers of dissimilar materials are used in most microelectronic components in order to achieve special functional requirements. Generally, the interface between two adjacent materials forms a weak link, not only because of the relatively low delamination strength, but also because of the existing mismatch in thermo-mechanical properties,...
