The Shanghaitech Microsystem And non-Linear transducers Laboratory (SMALL) is established in Fall 2017 associated with the School of Information Science and Technology at ShanghaiTech University by Principal Investigator Dr. Tao Wu.  At SMALL, we are developing chip-scale sensor and actuator systems with novel material and micro/nano-fabrication processes. Research in this area is motivated by the potential to produce high-performance, low-cost, miniature transducers. Specific research areas of interest include Micro-/Nano-Electro-Mechanical System (M/NEMS) design and modeling, novel multiferroic materials, processing and transducers, as well as their applications in smart hardware, renewable energy systems, Internet-Of-Things (IOT) etc. The researches at SMALL are, in particular, interdisciplinary, which incorporates the expertise from many engineering and scientific disciplinarians. We welcomes all science and engineering background to join this lab to explore fascinating micro/nano-technologies.

    • Dr. Wu and collaborators have published a paper in JMEMS !

      Dr. Wu and collaborators Ming-Huang Li and Songbin Gong et al have published one paper in JMEMS titled of “Temperature Stability Analysis of Thin-Film Lithium Niobate SH0 Plate Wave Resonators”.

      DOI: 10.1109/JMEMS.2019.2934126

      This paper presents an extensive study on the temperature coefficient of frequency (TCF) for Y36 cut thin-film lithium niobate (LiNbO3) resonators.

      FEM-simulated dispersive characteristics of the 1st-order TCFs for the SH0 plate wave resonators on the LiNbO3/SiO2 thin film with various surface boundary conditions: (a) Free-surface and open-circuited. (b) Freesurface and short-circuited. (c) Metal-loaded surface and short-circuited.

      (a) Cross-sectional view of the piezoelectric MEMS resonator for equivalent TCF mapping. (b) Hypothesis for the complex TCF behavior at the Region (III).

      SH0 mode higher lateral-order resonators for TCF model verification: (a) 3-electrode resonator for even-order overtones. (b) 2-electrode resonator array for odd-order overtones. The array design is applied to the 2-electrode resonator for enhancing the output signal.
