Description

The MEMS Sensors and Actuators Laboratory (MSAL) in the A.J. Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland (UMD) was established in January 2000.

Our lab focuses on application-driven technology development using micro- and nanoengineering approaches. A centerpiece of our efforts is systems integration to provide holistic solutions for real-world use. The focus of our work is aimed specifically at in-vivo and in-vitro clinical applications. This research is complemented by thrusts in energy storage, harvesting and conversion to provide power for the desired embedded, self-sustaining systems. We are a part of the the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), the Institute for Systems Research (ISR), the Maryland Nanocenter, Fischell Department of Bioengineering (BIOE), University of Maryland Energy Research Center (UMERC).

The research activities at MSAL are supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS), the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, the Department of Energy (DoE), and the Army Research Office (ARO).
