BIOGRAPHY

Highly Responsive pMUTs [BPN743]
Ultrasonics has been realized as a nondestructive measurement method for a variety of applications,
such as: medical imaging, healthcare monitoring, nondestructive testing, range finding, motion
sensing ,and etc. In addition, high intensity ultrasound can be used in therapeutic treatments,
such as: lithotripsy for kidney stone comminution, hyperthermia for cancer therapy, high-intensity
focused ultrasound (HIFU) for laparoscopic surgery, and transcranial sonothrombolysis for brain
stroke treatment.
MEMS ultrasound transducers are known to have several advantages over the conventional ultrasound
devices, such as: higher resolution, higher bandwidth, and lower power consumption. The main purpose
of this project is to develop new architectures of Piezoelectric Micromachined Ult1rasonic
Transducers (pMUT) with higher electromechanical energy efficiency and higher sensitivity using CMOS
fabrication technology, which make them suitable for battery power handheld devices. The specific
focus is on power-efficient hand-held medical devices for diagnosis/therapy with high acoustic
intensity and high frequency bandwidth requirements.
