Robert D. White
Ph.D. (Mechanical Engineering), University of Michigan, 2005
Prof. White's research interests focus on Micro- and Nano-electromechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS) sensors and actuators, microfabrication processes and materials, and computational modeling of micro-electromechanical systems. These interests are directed towards device development and engineering science in micro- and nano-technology, with an emphasis on acoustic sensing, wind tunnel instrumentation, dynamic systems, and robotic systems.
Tufts Micro- and Nano-Fabrication Facility (TMNF)
Prof. White directs the Tufts Micro- and Nano-Fabrication Facility, a multiple user, multiple PI, multiple department core facility for the fabrication of microscale and nanoscale devices of all types. The facility brings together researchers from Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical, and Biomedical Engineering, as well as Chemists and Biologists to develop a variety of new microsensors, microactuators, micro- and nano-electronics, and BioMEMS. Review the website for more information.
Microscale Sensors and Systems Laboratory
Prof. White's focused research occurs in the Microscale Sensors and Systems Laboratory, where we pursue device development and engineering science in micro- and nano-technology, with an emphasis on acoustic sensing, wind tunnel instrumentation, dynamic systems, and robotic systems. Recent projects include MEMS microphone and shear sensor arrays for aeroacoustics, an acoustic Doppler velocity measurement system, modeling and characterization of capacitive micromachined ultrasound (cMUT) transducers for biomedical ultrasound, MEMS actuators and sensors for soft-material robots, MEMS surface stress sensors for CMP, experimental physical models of the inner ear, and rapid nano-embossing of optical patterns in silk biopolymer thin films.
