Nanosensors: a review of recent research

Robert Bogue

The purpose of this paper is to provide a technical review of recent nanosensor research.

US research group develops world's smallest radio receiver

Robert Bogue

The purpose of this paper is to describe the world's smallest radio receiver, fabricated from a single carbon nanotube (CNT).

Fabrication of a MEMS accelerometer to detect heart bypass surgery complications

Craig Lowrie, Marc P.Y. Desmulliez, Lars Hoff, Ole Jakob Elle, Erik Fosse

The purpose of this paper is to review the design and fabrication of a micro‐accelerometer to be used to measure the heart wall motion of patients who have just undergone…

Concepts and issues in piezo‐on‐3D silicon structures

John Henry Sweet, David Hutson, Sandy Cochran, Anne Bernassau

The purpose of this paper is to explore concepts and manufacturing issues for the emerging piezo on silicon technology being used in ultra‐sound devices. Development of 3D…

Progress towards wafer‐scale fabrication of ultrasound arrays for real‐time high‐resolution biomedical imaging

Anne Bernassau, David Hutson, Christine E.M. Demore, David Flynn, Farid Amalou, Jonathan Parry, Jim McAneny, Tim W. Button, Marc P.Y. Desmulliez, Sandy Cochran

High‐frequency transducer arrays that can operate at frequencies above 30 MHz are needed for high‐resolution medical ultrasound imaging. The fabrication of such devices is…

MEMS ultra low leak detection methods: a review

Suzanne Millar, Marc Desmulliez

The purpose of this paper is to review traditional hermeticity test methods when applied to typical micro‐electro‐mechanical systems (MEMS) cavity volumes and to propose…

Implantable electronic devices technology challenges for long‐term human implantation

Anne Vanhoestenberghe

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the requirements for long‐term implantation of electronic devices with a focus on packaging and encapsulation.

Productionisation issues for commercialisation of microfluidic based devices

Dennis Patrick Webb, Benedikt Knauf, Chanqing Liu, David Hutt, Paul Conway

Microfluidic or “lab‐on‐a‐chip” technology is seen as a key enabler in the rapidly expanding market for medical point‐of‐care and other kinds of portable diagnostic…

Ferrite cores as back yoke for enhancing hall sensor sensitivity in caliper tool for pipeline inspection

Rajesh Keshwani, Shiben Bhattacharya

The purpose of this paper is to describe how to improve magnetic pick up sensor for detection of weak magnetic field. A magnetic marker detection system, built using hall…

Segmentation of unevenly illuminated line scanned images

Yih‐Chih Chiou, Meng‐Ru Tsai

Though many segmentation methods have been published, few of them are developed especially for line scanned images. An ill‐illuminated line scanned (IILS) image tends to…

Spectroscopic measurements on 3D objects in thermal plasmas

Julie Bénech, Pierre Freton, Jean‐Jacques Gonzalez, Mathieu Masquère

The purpose of this paper is to develop a mathematical tool and an experimental platform to be able to reconstruct thermal plasmas in three dimensions (3D) in order to…
