The IEEE Microsystems Boston Chapter is a joint chapter of the IEEE Sensors Council and the IEEE Ultrasonics Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control society (UFFC-S). It was formed with an objective to bring together microsystems researchers & enthusiasts from academia and industry, create awareness and enable deeper collaboration amongst the community.
The IEEE Sensors Council focuses on the theory, design, fabrication, manufacturing, and application of devices for sensing and transducing physical, chemical, and biological phenomena, with an emphasis on the electronics, physics, and reliability aspects of sensors and integrated sensor-actuators. IEEE Sensors Council serves the sensor community with its well-recognized publications, conferences, and technical committees.
The UFFC- Society is an organization that promotes the advancement of the theory, technology, materials, and applications relating to the generation, transmission, and detection of ultrasonic waves and related phenomena; medical ultrasound, and associated technologies; ferroelectric, piezoelectric, and piezomagnetic materials; frequency generation and control, timing, and time coordination and distribution.
The chapter aims to integrate multiple domains of microsystems. The fields of interest include but are not limited to micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), sensors, ultrasonics, ferroelectrics, resonators and devices, photonics, solid state circuits and devices, power electronics, microfluidics and semiconductor reliability.
