About Speaker Keynote topic

Resonant defects: a new approach to highly sensitive vibration activated diagnostic imaging

The presence of a defect leads to a local decrease in rigidity for a certain mass of the material and therefore manifests in a particular characteristic frequency of the defect. A frequency match between the driving mechanical wave and this characteristic frequency provides a Local Defect Resonance (LDR) and results in efficient energy delivery to the defect. Unlike the resonance of an entire specimen, LDR identifies the damage by its resonant response clearly distinguished and independent of the rest (intact) part of the specimen. The objective of the talk is to demonstrate that the frequency- and spatially-selective activation of defects via the concept of LDR is the way to boost efficiency and sensitivity of diagnostic imaging of damage. Multiple case studies to be considered include resonant imaging of various defects in composite materials via laser vibrometry, vibro-thermosonics, and nonlinear acoustic techniques.

Smart vibration-based micro and nano devices

Miniature structures and devices have captured the attention of the scientific community for several decades for their unprecedented attractive features. Today, several micro-electro-mechanical systems MEMS devices are being used in our everyday life, ranging from accelerometers and pressure sensors in automobiles, radio-frequency (RF) switches and microphones in cell phones, and inertia sensors in video games. Due to the quest to boost sensitivity, reduce power consumption, and increase integration density, the past two decades have witnessed the emergence of Nano-electro-mechanical systems NEMS. With the increasing demand to embed more intelligence into various applications, MEMS and NEMS continue to play key role on advancing innovation.

Along with their great promise, micro and nano devices have brought new challenges and a wide spectrum of unexplained and less-understandable mechanical behaviors and phenomena. Because these devices employ moveable compliant structures and due to the interaction with short-range forces, many of these challenges are related to their dynamical behavior, which is mostly nonlinear.

In this talk, we demonstrate that by developing a proper understanding and deep insight into the dynamics and nonlinear vibration phenomena at the micro and nano scale, new technological solutions and innovative ideas can be realized leading to new generations of superior devices. The talk will first discuss the realization of smart resonant sensing platforms utilizing multi-modal vibration excitation of structures to achieve multiple functionalities. These include boosting sensitivity, compensating for temperature drift, and combining sensing and actuation on a single device. In one application, active switches triggered by the detection of gas will be demonstrated. Toward this, electrostatically actuated microbeams resonators are fabricated, then coated with highly absorbent polymers, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), and afterward are exposed to gases. Such devices can be useful for instant alarming of toxic gases. The second part of the talk will discuss the intriguing static and dynamic behavior of actively tunable structures; which can be tuned using electrostatic and or/electrothermal actuation. We will discuss the potential of implementing such structures for logic, memory, and filtering applications.
