MEMS 1082 - ELECTROMECHANICAL SENSORS AND ACTUATORS
Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
The objective of this course is to provide a thorough understanding of the various mechanisms that can be exploited in the design of electromechanically sensors and actuators. These transduction mechanisms include: 1) transduction based on changes; in the energy stored in the electric field, 2) in the energy stored in the magnetic field, 3) piezoelectricity and pyroelectricity, 4) linear inductive transduction mechanisms, and 5) resistive transduction mechanisms. Will discuss various transduction materials, sensors and actuators from a wide range of applications.
