The research done in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) involves designing a device that allows fatigue tensile testing of MEMS materials in a liquid environment, and a device to measure the magnetic susceptibility of subcellular organelles. In the former, a bulk micromachined MEMS tensile specimen with integral grips was fabricated, and tensile fatigue tests were performed in air and saline solution. In the latter, a magnetophoresis approach in conjunction with a charged-coupled device (CCD) is explored to track tagged particles in a flow cell.
