(2015-01-21)State-of-the art microfabrication techniques enable new understanding of surface phenomena such as liquid wetting and dry adhesion. This understanding led to a surge of design and fabrication of novel non- and directional ...
Development of high-Q micromechanical cell mass sensor (optimizing parameters for in-plane mass sensors) (2015-01-21)There exists a strong correlation between the behavior of a cell, its physical properties, and its surrounding environment. Biomechanics has led to an improved understanding of the way diseases evolve and their progression ...
(2015-01-21)This thesis aims to study microassembly of micro-scale objects involving transfer printing and its applications. Conventional top-down monolithic microfabrication schemes puts many limitations on fabricating structures ...
(2015-01-21)In our modern scientific society, many new nano-materials are emerging that exhibit outstanding properties, and researchers claim that they have great potential to replace conventional mechanical and electronic devices. ...
An experimental study of supercritical CO2 flow in pipes and porous micro-models for carbon sequestration applications (2015-01-21)The flow of high-pressure, near-critical CO2 in configurations relevant to CO2 sequestration was investigated. The first configuration was CO2 flow in pipes and orifices at pressures and temperatures close to the critical ...
