Development of MEMS sensor chip equipped with ultra-high quality diamond cantilevers
from National Institute for Materials Science, Japan via ScienceDaily
Scientists have succeeded in developing a high-quality diamond cantilever with among the highest quality (Q) factor values at room temperature ever achieved. The group also succeeded for the first time in the world in developing a single crystal diamond microelectromechanical systems sensor chip that can be actuated and sensed by electrical signals. These achievements may popularize research on diamond MEMS with significantly higher sensitivity and greater reliability than existing silicon MEMS.
