  • Design and Fabrication of a Micropillar-Pumped Polymer Loop Heat Pipe

    Masaaki Hashimoto, Taiga Kawakami, Abdulkareem Alasli, Ryobu Nomura, Hosei Nagano, Ai Ueno

    Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE))     1 - 3 2023.10

    Lead author, Accepted,  ISSN  1057-7157

     View Summary

    This letter presents a micropillar-pumped polymer loop heat pipe (LHP) with potential applications in flexible electronics. A unique evaporator with a micro pillar wick was designed for a flexible polymer LHP. The polymer LHP was fabricated via simple and cost-effective soft lithography, omitting the need for a porous wick. This design and fabrication approach facilitated passive two-phase cooling in the polymer LHP, with up to 34 <inline-formula> <tex-math notation="LaTeX">$^{\circ}$</tex-math> </inline-formula>C reduction in evaporator temperature when compared to a non-fluid-charged state in a horizontal orientation. 2023-0140

  • Additive manufacturing method of electrothermal 4D bimorph microactuator

     View Summary

    This paper presents an additive manufacturing method of an electrothermally controllable 4D-printed bimorph microactuator. We fabricated an electrothermal 4D bimorph microactuator equipped with an electrical heater through a two-step additive process: two-photon polymerization (TPP) 4D printing and liquid metal microfluidic injection. First, a 3D thermal bimorph microstructure including a microchannel was built using TPP printing. Second, the printed microstructure was electrically wired by injecting a liquid metal into the microchannel. To validate this method, we fabricated and characterized a vertical-spiral-shaped electrothermal 4D rotary microactuator with a large angular displacement. The fabricated electrothermal microactuator successfully controlled its temperature and angular displacement via electricity. Furthermore, we experimentally demonstrated the unique ability of the electrothermal 4D bimorph microactuator to produce repeatable large angular displacements of more than 10° at 386 mV. Accordingly, the proposed method is expected to enhance the spatial design freedom of electrothermal microactuators with potential applications in soft microrobotics.

  • Development of a Robust Autofluorescence Lifetime Sensing Method for Use in an Endoscopic Application

     View Summary

    <jats:p>Endoscopic autofluorescence lifetime imaging is a promising technique for making quantitative and non-invasive diagnoses of abnormal tissue. However, motion artifacts caused by vibration in the direction perpendicular to the tissue surface in a body makes clinical diagnosis difficult. Thus, this paper proposes a robust autofluorescence lifetime sensing technique with a lens tracking system based on a laser beam spot analysis. Our optical setup can be easily mounted on the head of an endoscope. The variation in distance between the optical system and the target surface is tracked by the change in the spot size of the laser beam captured by the camera, and the lens actuator is feedback-controlled to suppress motion artifacts. The experimental results show that, when using a lens tracking system, the standard deviation of fluorescence lifetime is dramatically reduced. Furthermore, the validity of the proposed method is experimentally confirmed by using a bio-mimicking phantom that replicates the shape, optical parameters, and chemical component distribution of the cancerous tissue.</jats:p>
