Researchers want organic micro sensors printing




A group of scientists from Israel has developed a method for micro-electromechanical printing. Sensors In addition, the researchers do not use silicon, but printing them with materials which are suitable for implants.

Microelectromechanical systems, usually abbreviated to mems, are numerous sensors used in consumer electronics. Thus mems sensors built as accelerometers and gyroscopes in cell phones. Which are predominantly made ​​using lithographic techniques of silicon, but employees of the Tel Aviv University have developed organic mems sensors. These could be. Into biomedical devices, including implants, used

The mems sensors of the researchers are not lithographically produced, but produced by a printing technique. Thus scientists are able to make, that can be. Include pressure sensors used in flexible membranes The organic polymer that is used for the production is safer for implantation in patients than silicon sensors, and would also be economical. In addition, pressure sensors using the polymeric membranes able to measure than silicon pressure sensors accurately. Want to expand their printing process and the Israelis not only membranes but also produce small pumps and other sensors.
