Prof. Shkel was voted 2018 president-elect of the IEEE Sensors Council. The council, which comprises 26 member societies with more than 260,000 members worldwide, oversees IEEE’s activities related to sensor theory, design, fabrication, manufacturing, reliability and applications. [Link]
The paper from UCIrvine Microsystems Lab:
“Electrostatic Compensation of Structural Imperfections in Dynamically Amplified Dual-Mass Gyroscope”, A. Efimovskaya, Yu-Wei Lin, Danmeng Wang and A.M. Shkel
University of California, Irvine, USA
The paper was presented by Alexandra Efimovskaya at the IEEE International Symposium on Inertial Sensors and Systems held in Kauai, Hawaii, March 28-30. [Link]
Congratulation to All !
Prof. Shkel joined the IEEE-USA’s Research & Development Policy Committee (R&DPC) as the 2017 representative of the IEEE Sensors Council. The R&DPC provides technical advice to US government policymakers, analyze and interpret new technologies and policies, and promote policies that enhance US economic security and competitiveness.
