IMG Kickoff Meeting

Event date: 
Tue, 08/21/2018 - 11:45am to 1:30pm

With the Fall semester arriving, we will be having our IMG Kickoff Meeting on August 21, 2018 (day before classes start) from 11:45AM to 1:30PM. During this meeting, we'll discuss important IMG updates, introduce new members, recognize our accomplishments over the last year, and present some IMG awards. We may also try to take a group photo, so if you have a IMG polo or t-shirt, please wear it.

Please note, all IMG members are expected to attend this meeting. Pizza and drinks will be provided.

IMG Seminar: Haocheng Zhou and Dingkang Wang

Event date: 
Fri, 03/23/2018 - 11:45am to 12:45pm

This week, the speakers for the IMG Seminar are:

  •  Haocheng Zhou (Dr. Sheplak's group) on MEMS-Based Five-Hole Probe with Optical Pressure Transducers
  •  Dingkang Wang (Dr. Xie's group) on  Integrated Forward-View 2-Axis MEMS Scanner for Compact 3D Lidar

MEMS-Based Five-Hole Probe with Optical Pressure Transducers. This project focuses on a MEMS-based 5HP capable of measuring the localized velocity vector and the static&dynamic pressure in a flow field. By packaging multiple fiber-optic lever MEMS pressure sensors at the probe tip, this new device greatly reduces the settling time and offers higher bandwidth compared to traditional pneumatic 5HP. This talk is mainly about the fabrication process of five pressure transducers on a single die, the probe's hemispheric tip with ~100 µm (OD) holes on the tip surface, and the multi-fiber ferrule for optical packaging. 

Integrated Forward-View 2-Axis MEMS Scanner for Compact 3D Lidar. This project target at the integrated MEMS Scanner for MAV(Micro-air vehicles). The two vertically oriented mirror make forward view scan easy without difficult optical alignment. The weight of this MEMS scanner is only 20 mg, make it possible to be carried by MAV.

Dr. Xie Elected SPIE Fellow

We congratulate Dr. Xie for being elected as a SPIE Fellow!

The annual recognition of Fellows provides an opportunity for SPIE to acknowledge Members for their outstanding technical contributions and service to SPIE. Dr. Xie was awarded for his achievements in optical MEMS & optical endoscopic imaging.

More detailed information is available here and on SPIE website.

Dr. Xie named 2018 IEEE Fellow

Professor Huikai Xie from the Interdisciplinary Microsystem Group was elevated as an IEEE Fellow 2018. IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members with an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. Dr. Xie was awarded for his distinguished contributions to micro-electromechanical optical scanning systems. IMG extends its warmest congratulations!
