Mixed-Level Model for Highly Perforated Torsional Actuators Coupling the Mechanical, the Electrostatic and the Fluidic Domain

, , , ,
Electrostatic attraction between neighboring electrodes is a widely used actuation principle employed in tiltable micromirrors or microrelays. Electrostatic actuation is especially favored for switching applications in mobile telecommunication because of its low power consumption. State-of-the-art [...]

Very Large Scale Integration of MOEMS Mirrors, MEMS Angular Amplifiers and High-voltage, High-density IC Electronics for Photonic Switching

, , , , , , , , , ,
The demand for communication bandwidth together with advances in MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) technology has spurred rapid development in the field of MOEMS (micro-optical-electrical mechanical systems). One exciting opportunity is in the area of photonic switching. [...]

Development of the Multi-pixel X-ray Microcalorimeters

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
We are developing a multi-pixel x-ray microcalorimeters in order to realize good energy resolution x-ray imaging for future Japanese X-ray astronomy missions. The energy resolutions of 10eV at 6keV and 32x32 pixels of arrayed x-ray [...]

MEMS Technologies for Communications

, ,
Micromechanical (or umechanical) communication circuits fabricated via IC-compatible MEMS technologies and capable of low-loss filtering, mixing, switching, and frequency generation, are described with the intent to miniaturize wireless transceivers. Possible MEMS-based receiver front-end architectures are [...]
