  • Analysis of piezoresistance in n-type 6H SiC for high-temperature mechanical sensors

    Piezoresistance in n-type 6H SiC was analyzed on the basis of electron transfer and mobility shift mechanisms for hexagonal many-valley semiconductors. Three important gauge factors for piezoresistive sensor application, i.e., the longitudinal-, transverse-and shear gauge-factors, were calculated by using band parameters. The calculation was compared with experimental results taken from the literature. It was shown that incorporation of the electron transfer and the mobility shift mechanisms gives reasonable interpretation for piezoresistance in n-type 6H SiC within temperature range from 300 K to 523 K, and impurity concentration at n=3.3/spl times/10/sup 19/ cm/sup -3./ These conditions correspond to typical operation ranges of high-temperature piezoresistive sensors.

  • Single crystal silicon four-terminal nano-wire shear stress gauge for nano mechanical sensors

    P-type single crystal silicon four-terminal nanowire shear stress gauge (Si FSSG) was fabricated by electron-beam direct writing. The piezoresistance was investigated in order to demonstrate the usefulness of these sensing elements as mechanical sensors. The shear piezoresistance coefficient /spl pi//sub 44/ was found to be 77.4/spl times/10/sup -11/ Pa/sup -1/ at Ns=9-10/sup 19/ cm/sup -3/. This value was 54.8 % larger than the value obtained from p/sup +/ diffused piezoresistors, which are used in conventional mechanical sensors.

  • Measurement of ground surface displacement using stereo vision and mechanical sensors on humanoid robots

    This paper presents a system for measuring ground surface displacement using stereo vision and mechanical sensors on a humanoid robot. The stereo vision system generates a set of range data for each view by a correlation method as ground surfaces can be regarded as smoothed surfaces with random texture patterns. The mechanical sensors are encoders, gyro sensors and acceleration sensors that measure the angles of joints, angular velocity and acceleration of the robot. With those angles and the link geometry, the transfer matrices between different views are generated and used to register sets of range data.

  • Micro-Opto-Mechanical sensors for tactile width measurements of surface opening cracks in concrete

    The fabrication and laboratory testing of Micro-Opto-Mechanical sensors for the measurements of width of surface opening cracks in concrete structures are presented. The sensors are designed to be operated on a fan-out connector containing 12 multimode optical fibers, using a microstructure that can be mounted on the connector with a self aligned procedure. Thanks to the optical alignment automatically provided by such mounting method, each fiber in the connector can be used to interrogate an individual pressure sensor within an array composed by 12 elements in total. Using a soft polymer layer between the microsensor and the crack opening, the width of the crack can be derived by means of a tactile measurement performed by interrogating the 12 elements of the array alternatively, with a space resolution of 0.25 mm. The device is designed to be operated on board of a Remotely Piloted Aerial Vehicle equipped with a vision system that will be able to locate surface cracks of the external surface of reinforced concrete bridges and perform contact measurements on cracks using a robotic arm operated from the vehicle.

  • Permanent magnet synchronous motor drive without mechanical sensors

    A novel permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drive without mechanical sensors is presented. The motor is controlled by a new current control method which is based on the concept of space voltage vector. The speed and position of the motor are estimated by using an extended Kalman filter. The dynamic performance of the drive is investigated through computer simulation. The results show that the proposed mechanical sensorless PMSM drive can operate in a wide speed range.

  • Mechanical sensors based on reentrant flux reversal

    The authors report results of mechanical sensors which are based on the domain wall nucleation process. These sensors can detect position and force. It is shown that the position sensor has a linear characteristic with a submicron sensitivity and the force sensor has an almost-linear behavior for measuring force up to 3 N. A nonuniform behavior of the sensors was observed when the location of the nucleation point changes, and this was smoothed by using the flash annealing process.<<ETX>>

  • Analysis of piezoresistance in p-type silicon for mechanical sensors

    Typical p-type silicon mechanical sensors are designed to operate under temperature range from /spl sim/173 K to /spl sim/373 K and subjected to stress less than /spl sim/100 MPa. The operation range is mainly restricted by the electrical and mechanical properties of silicon. The authors derived an approximate piezoresistance equation valid for typical operation range of the p-type silicon mechanical sensors, from valence band model of Bir and Pikus taking into account the spin-orbit interaction. The piezoresistance in p-type silicon was analyzed based on hole transfer and conduction mass shift due to stress. These mechanisms were introduced by Suzuki et al. [1984] to interpret piezoresistance in p-type silicon, based on the valence band equation in the vicinity of k=0. Under the typical operation range for p-type silicon mechanical sensors, holes are located where the value of k is relatively large, i.e., off k=0 and degenerate band split due to stress is incomplete. The hole behavior in the valence band was compatible with the typical operation range for p-type silicon mechanical sensors.

  • Full speed range permanent magnet synchronous motor control without mechanical sensors

    This study presents a control method for permanent magnet (PM) motors based on a combination of a non-linear full-order observer and a signal injection scheme. Stable mechanical-sensorless operating range down to zero speed at full load is obtained using only voltage and current sensors. The signal injection scheme uses the asymmetry of the motor's <i>d</i> and <i>q</i>-axis inductances to estimate rotor position and speed. Such asymmetry is also taken into account in the motor model used to construct the observer to reduce current estimation error. The performance of the proposed scheme is validated through experimental results.

  • Thick film strain gauges on insulated metal substrates for high sensitivity mechanical sensors

    New thick film (TF) pastes have been tested on unconventional metal substrates for applications in sensor manufacturing. The good elastic properties of selected metals and alloys can improve TF transducer sensitivity. The compatibility of metal substrates and pastes with respect to TF technology has been characterized. Various systems have been tested with regard to the adhesion and to the dielectric surface condition; strain gauges have been printed and fired on the obtained insulated substrates and data on the measured values of some electrical parameters such as the sheet resistance value, the temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR), the gauge factor (GF) are reported.<<ETX>>

  • Electro-magneto-mechanical sensors based on parametric oscillation circuits

    Parameters in time-varying linear or non-linear circuits could be varied in such a way as to induce an oscillation. Because this oscillation is due entirely to the variation of the circuit parameters it is usually referred to as "parametric oscillation". We explain the phenomenon of parametric oscillation and establish the common basis for the configuration of several classes of sensors. In particular, we shall present the results of our experimental work on magnetic and electric field sensors and their respective applications. Our results show that the developed sensors are sensitive, less susceptible to mechanical vibrations and shock, have a wide frequency bandwidth and can operate in rugged and hazardous environments.
