The longitudinal piezoelectric effect in ferroelectric ceramics is investigated as a function of amplitude and frequency of external pressure, the crystal structure and microstructure of ceramics. The domain wall contribution to the piezoelectric response is the dominant extrinsic origin of the instability of the observed piezoelectric effect, but, for a given composition, can be affected by dopants and microstructure. Other ...

By focusing on the sophisticated functions of the mammalian cochlea, we are aiming to apply its resonator array structure to highly efficient smart sensors and actuators. In this paper, we propose an equivalent mechanical model named "fishbone architecture" which is easily realized by Si micromachining. Applications of the architecture to a sensor-artificial basilar membrane (BM) microphone (ABMM)-and an actuator-"giant impulse generator"-are proposed and examined by FEM analyses. The fabrication process and experimental results of the Si device are shown.
We propose and demonstrate a design of an interactive green street facility using light dependent sensors and actuators for enhancing the social cohesion of people. We show that electronics and green design can have positive effect on social interaction in a neighbourhood by a design example, called the ldquoPrachtpaalrdquo, for the Bennekel district in the city of Eindhoven, the Netherlands. By adding unique green designs in the district, the atmosphere and living quality of a neighbourhood can be greatly improved. With the implementation of light dependent sensors and colourful lights, the growth of the green plants is indicated so that people are stimulated in a more responsible way to take care of the plants. We show by experimental demonstration that the implementation of light dependent sensors and actuators for interactive design achieves stimulating effects on the inhabitants, which enhances social cohesion and activities in the district.
The longitudinal piezoelectric effect in ferroelectric ceramics is investigated as a function of amplitude and frequency of external pressure, the crystal structure and microstructure of ceramics. The domain wall contribution to the piezoelectric response is the dominant extrinsic origin of the instability of the observed piezoelectric effect, but, for a given composition, can be affected by dopants and microstructure. Other sources of instabilities in piezoelectric response, such as chemical inhomogeneities and defects, are also discussed.
This paper presents a combined platform of wireless sensors and actuators based on embedded controller. To proof the concept a fireworks detonation system utilizing MOSFETs to switch high current bursts has been developed. All required electronics, enclosure panel and control software have been fabricated. Commands are intelligently issued using an intuitive user interface. Manual control of channel firing and testing as well as a scripting system allow for complex and visually stunning firework demonstrations to be put together.
In this work, SnO2 nanorod arrays have been deposited by inductively coupled plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) without any high temperature treatment or additional catalysis. The SnO2 nanorods are connected at the root with a very thin seed layer on the substrate. The SnO2 nanorods have a spatial distribution density of 350 mum-2 and large surface area of around 108 m2/g. Pd was chemically modified on surface of the SnO2 nanorods by spin coating. The sensitivity of the SnO2 nanorod arrays increased around 4 times after doping with 1 layer of Pd, but decreased continuously with increasing Pd layers. The effect of the annealing temperature on the sensing properties was also studied and it was found that annealing at 500degC is enough to achieve better performance of the Pd-doped SnO2 nanorod array sensor.
We propose to use a set of general purpose computing (GPC), communication and multimedia devices such as laptops, tablets, PDAs, smart phones, audio recorders, and camcorders as a distributed array signal processing system. A novel scheme is developed to synchronize input and output sampling for a network of distributed multi-channel audio sensors and actuators. IEEE 802.11 wireless network is used to deliver the global clock and data streams to distributed GPC platforms, while an interrupt timestamping mechanism is employed to distribute the common clock between I/O devices. Adaptive statistical processing is applied to reduce the effect of timing errors inevitable on real-life platforms. A prototype of distributed array is implemented based on Intel®Centrino™laptops and experimental results demonstrate a precision in A/D and D/A synchronization better than 50 μs (a couple of samples at 48 kHz).
This paper presents a symmetric three-flow microfluidic concentration gradient generator, made possible by a 3D microchannel network fabricated via ultra- high resolution Multijet 3D printing. The prototype fluidic device is utilized as an effective tool for the expedited screening of multi-drug combinations. It rapidly generates 15 discrete combinations of three input drugs which are used to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) value of the three individual antibiotics, as well as to perform simultaneous clinical three-way antibiotic interaction studies on ampicillin-resistant Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria. The results from individual antibiotic experiments are used to determine the discrete MIC values, and the multi-drug study reveals clinically relevant antagonistic, synergistic and suppressive interactions between the three different families of antibiotics commonly used to combat antibiotic resistant infections. Furthermore, a simple and effective method of visual interpretation of the experimental results is employed, demonstrating this device's use as an effective multi-drug screening platform for applications in point-of-care biomedical research and clinical medicine.
We present an optical BioMEMS sensor with chitosan-mediated, spatially- selective functionalization of a microfluidic channel sidewall with single stranded probe DNA (ssDNA). High-contrast optical sensing of hybridization using integrated optical waveguides and fluorescently-tagged matching versus mismatching DNA sequences is demonstrated. The collected peak emission signal corresponding to matching DNA sequences (4μM) exceeds the peak emission signal corresponding to mismatching DNA sequences (8μM) by a factor of 50. We demonstrate that the device is robust and reusable by exposing it to two successive cycles of denaturation/re-hybridization, each time recovering the initial sensitivity and specificity.
