Multi-layer three-dimensional (3D) metamaterials have emerged as a platform to realize multifunctional chiral devices such as for asymmetric transmission. However, the alignment and fabrication methods of 3D chiral metamaterials are quite complex and time-consuming, which deteriorate the pragmatic use of such devices. Here, a unique type of direction-controlled single-layer metasurface hologram consisting of low loss hydrogenated amorphous silicon meta-atoms is proposed. The hologram behaves like a chiral metasurface and generates two unique holographic images in the forward and backward directions. The observed direction-sensitivity is explained by the spin-dependent multiplexing of two independent single-layer metasurfaces. Our proposed metasurface has obvious advantages over multi-layer chiral structures in terms of ease of fabrication, robustness, scalability, and cost-effectiveness. Finite-difference time-domain simulations proved the feasibility of direction-controlled all-dielectric holograms with high transmission efficiency in the visible domain. Due to the relatively easy manufacturing method utilized, and the novel functionality, this work can empower practical applications using direction-dependent integrated functional devices.

Junseok, Chae; Najefi, Khalil; Külah, Haluk (2003-06-12)
A monolithic three-axis silicon capacitive accelerometer utilizing a combined surface and bulk micromachining technology is demonstrated with micro-g resolution. The accelerometer consists of three individual single-axis accelerometers. All three devices have full-wafer thick silicon proof-mass, large area polysilicon sense/drive electrodes, and small sensing gap (<1.5 /spl mu/m) formed by a sacrificial oxide layer. The fabricated accelerometer system is 7/spl times/9 mm/sup 2/ in size, has >5pF/g measured ...

A monolithic three-axis micro-g resolution silicon capacitive accelerometer system utilizing a combined surface and bulk micromachining technology is demonstrated. The accelerometer system consists of three individual single-axis accelerometers fabricated in a single substrate using a common fabrication process. All three devices have 475-mu m-thick silicon proof-mass, large area polysilicon sense/drive electrodes, and small sensing gap (< 1.5 mu m) formed by a sacrificial oxide layer.

Aydin, Osman; Akın, Tayfun (2013-08-01)
This paper proposes a novel bulk-micromachined MEMS accelerometer employing split interdigitated sense fingers that provide a fully differential signal interface, where the accelerometer can be fabricated by a modified silicon-on-glass process using a silicon-on-insulator (SOI) wafer. The accelerometer combines the feasibility of fabricating large mass and high aspect ratio structures using bulk-micromachining together with the highly sensitive split interdigitated sense finger triplets that are connected w...
A symmetric surface micromachined gyroscope with decoupled oscillation modes
Alper, Said Emre; Akın, Tayfun (2001-06-14)
This paper reports a new symmetric gyroscope structure that allows not only matched resonant frequencies for the drive and sense vibration modes for better resolution, but also decoupled drive and sense oscillation modes for preventing unstable operation due to mechanical coupling. The symmetry and decoupling features are achieved at the same time with a new suspension beam design. The gyroscope structure is designed using a standard three-layer polysilicon surface micromachining process (MUMPs) and simulat...
