Professor, Electrical & Computer Engineering


The Takahata lab’s research focuses on a broad range of fabrication and packaging in the micro and nano domains and their application to MEMS and other micro/nanomachined devices. They strive to develop micro/nano-engineered devices and their manufacturing methods towards realizing innovative products and technologies to shape a better world. This includes areas under the following themes: 1) micro/nanofabrication processes, 2) micromachinied sensors and actuators, 3) medical MEMS, 4) nanotechnology, and 5) microplasma control and applications. The biomedical specific applications of MEMS being developed in the lab include implantable wireless drug delivery chips, “smart” stents, micro rotary scanner for 3D microendoscopy, and steerable active catheters.
