Optical MEMS and BioMEMS

Overview

We are working on the research and development and also expansion of the application of a portable radio signal transmission micro sensor, developed by using photolithographic technology (micromachining technology), not consisting of assemblies of individual optical components as before. All following devices are several times or several tens times smaller than the conventional devices and have realized the world smallest size. Also, there are applied in medical engineering area. 1) a tiny scanning microscope which enables a tomography applying a micro mirror, 2) high accuracy micro displacement sensor which can be built in a micro mirror, motor, finger of robot, or manipulator, 3) noninvasive portable micro devices such as a blood flow sensor, blood sugar level sensor, and alcohol level sensor which performs sensing on a body condition, 4) low power consumption radio signal transmission sensing device for avian influenza.
