AME at PowerMEMS conference Japan

AME was well represented at the 2014 PowerMEMS conference in Awaji, Japan. A total of 5 contributions were presented, almost half of the 12 total submissions from the U.S. A list of publications with links is below.

We met with many of our overseas collaborators and previous group members, such as Eric Yeatman, Shad Roundy, Paul Mitcheson and Einar Halvorsen and enjoyed many discussions and a great poster session with lots of interesting questions.

After the conference we also got the fantastic opportunity to visit the Measurement, Machining and Control Laboratory at Kyoto University under Prof. Atsushi Matsubara.
