High Sensitivity Infrared Sensing Apparatus
Researchers at the University of Virginia have developed a novel idea for IR sensor system design where the detector is suspended away from electrical and thermal connections. Sensitivity of such a system is expected to be an order of magnitude better than the current IR sensors.Infrared sensors have become widely used in many detection systems, mo...

Method and System for Capillary Force Actuators
For micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and bio-MEMS (e.g., micro total analysis systems, or MTAS), a variety of force actuation methods have been used to either move structures or to induce stress in stationary structures, including electromagnetic, electrostatic, pneumatic, thermal, piezoelectric, magnetostrictive, among others. Each of these ...
