    • Optimal Material Selection for Transducers 

      Seviora, Gregory (University of Waterloo, 2018-02-15)
      When selecting an active material for an application, it is tempting to rely upon prior knowledge or commercial products that fit the design criteria. While this method is time effective, it does not provide an optimal ...
    • Power Module Packaging in Automotive Applications 

      Atelge, Muhammed Rasit (University of Waterloo, 2016-05-02)
      In this study, nano silver paste was used as die attach material with the aim of increasing reliability of joints in power modules in automotive applications. Prior to joining, nano silver paste was spread on the interface ...
    • Resonant Adaptive Mirrors 

      Kamel, Amr (University of Waterloo, 2020-05-28)
      Deformable mirrors (DMs) are integrated into adaptive optical (AO) systems to compensate for wavefront aberrations. These aberrations degrade the image resolution of telescopes, microscopes, ophthalmoscopes, and optical ...
    • Resonant Drive Techniques for MEMS: A Comparative Study 

      Abdelrahman, Rana (University of Waterloo, 2023-06-12)
      Electrostatic actuation is popular in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) because of its many advantages. However, it requires high voltage, typically provided by a power supply and a high voltage amplifier, which is ...
    • Resonant MEMS Deformable Mirror 

      Kocer, Samed (University of Waterloo, 2022-01-21)
      The performance of optical systems is often affected by aberrations that degrade the image resolution and contrast. These aberrations may be induced from atmospheric turbulence, imperfection in the optical alignment, or ...
    • Tunable Permittivity Sensors 

      Ahmed, Alaaeldin (University of Waterloo, 2021-09-02)
      This thesis presents a novel electric permittivity sensor based on Bleustein- Gulyaev (BG) waves; waves that propagate along the surface of shear-poled piezoelectric materials. BG waves couple electromagnetic and acoustic ...
    • Use of Kinematics to Minimize Construction Workers' Risk of Musculoskeletal Injury 

      Alwasel, Abdullatif (University of Waterloo, 2017-03-29)
      Construction work requires more repetitive and highly physical effort than, for example, office work. Despite technological advancements in construction, the human factor is still an essential part of the industry. Hence, ...
