Protecting microelectromechanical system sensors in harsh environments

07 March, 2013

Sensors used in harsh conditions, such as deep-sea oil wells, must withstand extreme temperatures and pressures for hundreds of hours without failing. Researchers have investigated two metal alloys that could give microelectromechanical system (MEMS) sensors better protection in the toughest environments.


Advanced exoskeleton promises more independence for people with paraplegia

18 January, 2013
