"Graphene-coated liquid metal droplet-based inertial sensor for motion monitoring and human machine interfaces"
Wedyan Babatain, a postdoctoral fellow in the Tangible Media research group, will give this talk as part of the Nano Explorations webinar series hosted by MIT.nano.
Dr. Babatain will discuss the development of practical resistive and capacitive-type inertial sensors using liquid metal as a functional proof mass material. Utilizing the unique electromechanical properties of liquid metal, the novel inertial sensor design confines a graphene-coated liquid metal droplet inside tubular and 3D architectures, enabling motion sensing in single and multiple directions.
She will demonstrate the integrated sensor for real-time- monitoring of human health/ physical activity and for soft human-machine interfaces. She will discuss how the proposed inertial sensor architecture and materials offer a new paradigm for manufacturing these widely used sensors that have the potential to complement the performance of their silicon-based counterparts and extend their applications.
This event is virtual, free, and open to the public.
