In order for the rapidly emerging field of MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) to meet its extraordinary expectations regarding commercial impact, issues pertaining to how they fail must be understood. We identify failure modes common to a broad range of MEMS actuators, including adhesion (stiction) and friction-induced failures caused by improper… (More)
The ability to make in-situ performance measurements of MEMS operating at high speeds has been demonstrated using a new image analysis system. Significant improvements in performance and reliability have directly resulted from the use of this system.
Estimating the necessary hardware resources and the architecture of a Microsoft Exchange messaging infrastructure is a complex and demanding process. Typically consultants rely on past experience and conjectures to recommend a deployment architecture that meets the customer requirements. Microsoft System Center Capacity Planner 2006 (SCCP) eliminates this… (More)
The paper presents an overview of the recent research on metasurfaces performed in the author's group. This covers the introduction of bianistropic Sheet Transition Conditions (STCs), the subsequent elaboration of a general synthesis technique based on surface susceptibility tensors, the complementary elaboration of Finite Difference (FD) and Finite Element… (More)
