UCLA to Develop Advanced MEMS Technology for Defense Applications
The DARPA grant will be distributed over the next 4.5 years
The UCLA engineering group, led by PI Professor Chang-Jin "CJ" Kim, will research and develop rotating microscale motors for sensing and communications that are electronically connected versus rotary power. The project goal of the UCLA team is to demonstrate a MEMS-fabricated rotary stage that would enable free rotation joined by electrical power and signal transfer. The funding comes from the DoD agency's Information Tethered Micro Automated Rotary Stages program.
