New Wind Tunnel

A world class grazing flow impedance tube (GFIT) facility has been brought to UF and now a part of IMG. The tunnel, once used at the NASA LaRC in Hampton, VA will allow for cutting edge research to be done in the areas of acoustic liner technology and testing, shear stress measurements and synthetic jet research. Currently being installed, the tunnel should be operational by Summer 2009.

MEMS 2009

Sheetal Shetye and Ilan Eskinazi will be presenting a poster at MEMS 2009 in Sorrento Italy entitled, "Part-to-part and part-to-substrate magnetic self-assembly of millimeter scale components with angular orientation"

PowerMEMS 2008

Shuo Cheng and Ben Bowers both got papers accepted to PowerMEMS 2008 in Sendai Japan. Shuo's paper, "A Multi-Pole Magnetic Generator with Enhanced Voltage Output for Low-Frequency Vibrational Energy Harvesting," will be presented as an oral, and Ben's paper, "Spherical Magnetic Generators for Bio-Motional Energy Harvesting," will be presented as a poster.
