Empowering Agilent Instruments with MEMS

Qing Bai. Ph.D.Agilent Technologies

As the world’s premier measurement company, Agilent offers a variety of state-of-the-art test and measurement equipment that serves the markets of electrical measurement, chemical analysis, and life sciences. Not surprisingly, more and more micromachined parts and consumables are being developed and adopted into Agilent instruments as the performance differentiators. This talk will give a brief review on the MEMS research work done at Agilent Labs and describe some microfluidic devices used in key Agilent products, such as Agilent’s Jet Weaver microfluidic mixer and HPLC chip.
Qing Bai received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1999. Her thesis was on 3-dimentional neural recording electrodes with on-chip circuitry. After graduation, she joined Guidant Corporation and worked on low-power IC designs for cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators. She has been working for the Agilent Labs since 2000 and is currently with the Microdevice Technology Department. Her research interests are in MEMS design and fabrication for microfluidic applications, nano measurement systems, electrical and optical applications, and packaging.
