  Speakers

Prof. Shannon Timpe of Bradley University, Peoria, IL 61625

Topic:

Microelectromechanical System: Recent Developments in Biosensing and Nanoscale Characterization

Abstract of the Talk


Microelectromechanical systems, or MEMS, refers to a class of complex, semiconductor-based engineering devices with applications as diverse as biosensing, energy harvesting, optics, and RF electronics. In this seminar, Dr. Timpe will present an overview of the field and describe some of the recent boundary-pushing applications in MEMS technology. In addition, the seminar will present a detailed description of some active research from the Timpe Research Group. This includes utilization of microtechnology for applications in biosensing for drug discovery efforts and activities related to nanoscale material characterization will be presented. In this research, custom-designed MEMS devices are used to identify the effects of microfabrication on semiconductor properties.
