    • Low-voltage small-size double-arm MEMS actuator 

      Biyikli, N.; Damgaci, Y.; Cetiner, B.A. (2009)
      The fabrication and characterisation of a double-arm cantilever-type metallic DC-contact MEMS actuator with low pull-down voltage are reported. Bi-layer TiW cantilevers with an internal stress gradient were fabricated using ...
    • Metamaterial-based wireless RF-MEMS strain sensors 

      Melik, R.; Unal, E.; Perkgoz, N.K.; Puttlitz, C.; Demir, H. V. (2010)
      Approximately 10% of the fractures do not heal properly because of the inability to monitor fracture healing. Standard radiography is not capable of discriminating whether bone healing is occurring normally or aberrantly. ...
    • Nanoelectromechanical switches for reconfigurable antennas 

      Cetiner, B.A.; Biyikli, N.; Yildirim, B.S.; Damgaci, Y. (2010)
      We report on the full-wave analyses of a frequency reconfigurable antenna integrated with metallic nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS) switches (length = 3 μm, width = 60 nm). The NEMS switch used in this work has the same ...
    • Nested metamaterials for wireless strain sensing 

      Melik, R.; Unal, E.; Perkgoz, N. K.; Santoni, B.; Kamstock, D.; Puttlitz, C.; Demir, H. V. (IEEE, 2009-12-28)
      We designed, fabricated, and characterized metamaterial-based RF-microelectromechanical system (RF-MEMS) strain sensors that incorporate multiple split ring resonators (SRRs) in a compact nested architecture to measure ...
    • Spiral microfluidics device for continuous flow PCR 

      Salemmilani, R.; Cetin, B. (2013)
      Polymerase-chain-Reaction (PCR) is a thermal cycling (repeated heating and cooling of PCR solution) process for DNA amplification. PCR is the key ingredient in many biomedical applications. One key feature for the success ...
