Alper Ozgurluk is currently working towards his PhD degree at University of California, Berkeley with Prof. Clark Nguyen. He received his B.S. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey in 2012.
Temperature-Stable Micromechanical Resonators and Filters [BPN540]
This project aims to suppress temperature-induced frequency shift in high frequency micromechanical resonators targeted for channel-select filter and oscillator applications. A novel electrical stiffness design technique is utilized to compensate for thermal drift, in which a temperature-dependent electrical stiffness counteracts the resonator’s intrinsic dependence on temperature caused mainly by Young’s modulus temperature dependence.
