Research Projects

Project Gecko: Using a piezoresistive, dual-axis MEMS force sensor to investigate the adhesion of gecko hairs.

Blood Pressure Sensor: A pressure-sensing diaphragm was mounted onto the end of a fiber optic cable using a 8 cap microfabricated from the elastic, biocompatible polymer SU-8. The gap between the diaphragm and the cable formed a Fabry-Perot interferometer, allowing interferometric measurement of pressure-induced diaphragm deflection that is immune to broadband signal intensity fluctuations.
