Lingqi Wu received his B.S. and M.S. degree at Tsinghua University, Beijing, in Mechanical Engineering (2007) and Instrument Science (2009), respectively. Currently, he is a 4th year PhD student in EECS department at UC Berkeley, working with prof. Clark Nguyen. Lingqi’s research interests are high power wideband MEMS filters and channel select filters. He has won the BSAC Best Poster Award with project titled “Temperature Stable Micromechanical Resonators and Filters” in spring 2011 and the Best Presentation Award with project titled "Hollow Stems for Hihger Micromechanical Disk Resonator Quality Factor" in Fall 2012.
Tunable & Switchable Micromechanical RF Filters [BPN709]
This project aims to explore the use of on-chip capacitively transduced micromechanical resonators to realize RF filters with substantial size and performance advantages. With their extremely high quality factor in UHF range and strong coupling coefficient enabled by nanometer electrode-to-resonator gap spacings, capacitive-gap transduced micromechanical resonators should be able to realize both banks of narrowband filter for reconfigurable RF channel selection and wideband filters targeting fast data transmission.
