Our paper “Piezo Capsule: Ultrasonic Way of Wireless Pressure Measurement” is published in Advanced Intellligent Systems. Here, we present the piezo capsule, a simple, cost-effective, and miniaturized passive ultrasound pressure sensing system. We demonstrated the real-time pressure profiles of an artificial vessel for varying fluid flow pulse frequency and volumetric rates.

Our paper “High shear rate propulsion of acoustic microrobots in complex biological fluids” is published in Science Advances. Here, we show how acoustically-powered microrobots can be efficiently propelled thorough complex viscoelastic fluids, such as blood and mucus, by the use of high shear rate fluidic flow near their body.
