Prof. Enakshi Bhattacharya, Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Madras, was the expert speaker. She talked about Micro Electro Mechanical Systems and their application in various fields like aerospace, automotives and the medical industry. She discussed the fabrication of pressure sensors and their sensitivity, MEMS accelerometers, micromachining, MEMS differential capacitors, silicon based biosensors, integration of various engineering fields with biology and detection of triglycerides, EISCAP to measure pH and use of electrodes to cure retina damaged blindness.
She apprised about the currently running National Programme on Micro and Smart Systems (NPMASS) with the basic aim of creating awareness in India about MEMS and Smart Systems. She elaborated on NPMASS programme under which design centres with commercial MEMS software tools have been set up in educational institutes across India and fabrication of the designed structures is also facilitated with the hope that more and more people will take up work in this dynamic field.
It was a very enlightening and engrossing lecture. Over 300 UG/PG students from Electrical, Electronics and Computer Science Departments were present. Prof. Raminder Kaur, delivered the vote of thanks.
