MEMS Sensing and neural-computing Lab - Mohammad H Hasan


Mohammad H Hasan is a PhD candidate in Mechanical and materials engineering (MME). His research is focused on applications of Mico-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). Mohammad H Hasan has worked on multiple projects aiming to use MEMS devices as sensors (such as temperature, humidity and pressure sensors). Currently, Mohammad H Hasan is working on double-resonance excitation, which is a new means of excitation that utilizes the mechanical resonance of MEMS and the electrical resonance of the circuit to reduce the voltage requirements of MEMS by over an order of magnitude. 

As utilizing electrical resonance to excite microbeams was found to change the behavior of the system, we found that MEMS devices, while operated at electrical resonance, exhibit characteristics similar to that of a neuron, following the rate theory and the dynamic field theory. Recently, Mohammad's research is focused on utilizing MEMS as artificial electromechanical neurons.
