Home Page
Research Interests: Design of chip-scale integrated micromechanical circuits that combine various micromechanical transducers and sensors to perform complex functions, such as electrical filters, oscillators, and sensor arrays, in a design strategy analogous to VLSI transistor circuits. Developing behavioral models and equivalent circuits for micromechanical components to be used as unit cells, e.g., individual resonators, accelerometers, to be hierarchically used in larger mechanical circuits that outperform their conventional purely transistor counterparts.
Job Interests: Academic, Industry R&D, post-doc

BIOGRAPHY
Mehmet Akgul (BS'07) received his B.S. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey as 2nd of his class in 2007. He is currently working towards his PhD degree at University of California, Berkeley with Prof. Clark Nguyen.
His research focuses on design, microfabrication, and testing of large scale micromechanical circuits using capacitively transduced resonators as the building block, with primary focus on RF-channel select filter banks capable of selecting individual narrow-band channels directly at RF frequencies for true cognitive radio applications. His work also extends into improving capacitive resonator performance by using high-Q resonator materials, such as polydiamond; and strengthening electromechanical coupling via capacitive gap scaling by using ALD deposited high-k dielectrics.
