Welcome to MicroSystems Lab!

The Microsystems Laboratory at the University of California Irvine conducts the cutting edge research and provides rigorous multidisciplinary academic training in the field of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS). The Laboratory assumes a leadership role in the development of chip-scale gyroscopes and Inertial Measurement Units (IMU). Researchers in the laboratory are skilled in the full cycle of development, including theory, design, modeling, fabrication, control electronics, packaging, and hands-on experiment. The innovations are fueled by funding from the government and private industry.
