Design Optimization of Piezoelectric Micro-machined Modal Gyroscope

Shambhu Singh[1], Dr. N N Sharma[1]
[1]Birla Institute of Technology and science, Pilani, Rajasthan, India

A solid state Piezoelectric Micro Machined Modal Gyroscope is a vibratory type of gyroscope which sense the motion by voltage induced due to Coriolis force. It utilizes natural frequency of the structure to maximize the displacements and hence maximizing the induced voltage signals for sensing.The mode suitable for gyroscopic motion is 9th mode, which was found to be vibrating at 350.217 kHz. A ...

[1]National MEMS Design Center, Department of Applied Physics, Shri G S Institute of Technology & Science, Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India

Optical tweezers work on the idea of non-contact Optical Pressure felt by transparent particles, when shined by coherent light source such as lasers. On the other hand when light falls on the metal it excites the electron inside it and make them free. When these free electron cloud moving in an harmonic frequency it satisfies the resonance condition called surface plasmon resonance (SPR). We ...

Extraction of COM Parameters and Quality Factor of One Port SAW Resonator Using FEM Based Simulation

A. K. Namdeo[1], H. B. Nemade[1]
[1]Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Assam, India

The paper presents a method of extraction of coupling of modes (COM) parameters for a one port surface acoustic wave (SAW) resonator from the results of finite element analysis in COMSOL Multiphysics®. The COM parameters calculated are electromechanical coupling coefficient, reflection coefficient, and SAW phase velocity. In addition, the quality factor of the SAW resonator is determined. The ...

Simulation of Surface Stress Effect on Mechanical Behaviour of Silicon Microcantilever

A. Ricci, E. Giuri, and C. Ricciardi
LATEMAR, Italy

Microcantilevers made of crystal silicon are probably the most diffused type of MEMS because of their simple fabrication and their vast applications. In this presentation we treat the mechanical behaviour of silicon mirocantilevers, and also give an overview of the many application areas that these apply to.

Visions Realized: Using COMSOL Multiphysics to Prepare Students for the Modern World

Bruce A. Finlayson
University of Washington
Washington, USA

This talk demonstrates the success in teaching chemical engineering undergraduates to use COMSOL Multiphysics (FEMLAB) to solve realistic problems in a project format. Undergraduates have been creative and solved problems much more difficult than those in their textbooks, thus gaining a deeper understanding of transport processes. Illustrations are also given how they check to see they’ve ...

Modeling of Vibrating Atomic Force Microscope´s Cantilever within Different Frames of Reference

E. Kamau, and F. Voigt
University of Oldenburg, Germany

Cantilever vibration modes were simulated with COMSOL Multiphysics. In the 1st approach the model consisted of an excitation piezo, a holder plate and a chip where the cantilever was mounted on. A sinusoidal voltage signal was applied to the piezo in the simulation, which resulted in movements of the holder plate and finally led to the excitation of the cantilever. In the 2nd approach the model ...

Simulation of Topology Optimized Electrothermal Microgrippers

O. Sardan[1], D. Petersen[1], O. Sigmund[2], and P. Boggild[1]
[1]DTU Nanotech, Denmark
[2]DTU Mechanical Engineering, Denmark

In this work, electrothermal microgrippers designed using topology optimization are modeled. The microgrippers are composed of two 5 μm-thick polysilicon actuators facing each other. The gap between the actuators are 2 μm in the initial state and the microgrippers are able to both fully close and further open this gap. The operation principle of the actuators is quite similar to that of a ...

Multiphysics System Simulation for MEMS Inertial Sensors

R. Sattler
University of Applied Sciences, Regensburg, Germany

This paper gives an overview of modelling microsensors on geometry and system level. The focus will be on the generation of the multiphysics reduced order system model and the coupling with package and ASIC models. The method is based on modal superposition. This means all the details of the sensor can be considered in a finite element model. The mechanical mode shapes of this model form the ...

Effect of Mass Adsorption on a Resonant NEMS

J. J. Ruz Martinez
Instituto de Microelectronica de Madrid
Tres Cantos
Madrid, Spain

The motion of a resonant NEMS has been widely studied for many different applications such as structural mechanics in engineering, ultra sensitive mass spectrometers or the well known Atomic Force Microscope. The study of the eigenfrequencies of such structures is very important, and nowadays there are good theoretical methods to accurately predict such eigenfrequencies. When a little mass is ...

Optical Manipulation of Microscopic Objects

R. Ozawa
Yokohama University
Japan

In recent years, optical manipulation using optical radiation pressure has been widely studied. In this study, the radiation pressure exerted on various kinds of microscopic objects with different laser beams was evaluated by COMSOL Multiphysics software. By changing beam shapes, microscopic objects can be trapped and rotated. This paper is in Japanese.
