MEMS in Mechatronics – Guest Lecture by Dr. Hitesh Gatty
As a part of Diamond Jubilee Lecture Series, a guest lecture on “Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS)” by Dr. Hithesh Kumar Gatty was organized by the Department of Mechatronics Engineering.
Dr. Hithesh Kumar Gatty was selected to carry out research at Advanced Research Centre of Electronic systems in Italy. He also worked in IMEC, Belgium on MEMS and has a deep understanding of Wafer-level MEMS fabrication. He obtained his doctoral degree from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden with a thesis in MEMS-based Amperometric sensor that is applicable for diagnosis and monitoring of asthma.
He is currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden. His main interest lies in MEMS, understanding various sensing principles, and sensor fabrication in order to realize a miniaturized sensor. He has competency in sensor development based on novel materials applicable to the medical technology industry.
Dr. Gatty’s lecture focused on MEMS in the domain of Mechatronics. He started with the working principle of different sensors and their wide range applications – further speaking about the integrated Amperometric gas sensor. The talk continued with the discussion on the sensor design concept, the importance of sensor miniaturization, and design considerations to be taken into account with regards to sensor design. He also discussed the Sensor assembly for Miniaturized NO sensor and characterization of the sensors.
