Using Noise to Control Micromechanical & Macromechanical Systems – Professor Balakumar Balachandran, University of Maryland

Dec 1, 2017engineering and tech, physical sciences

Micromechanical oscillators are components of many electronic systems that keep track of signal processing and ensure data is moved around without becoming jumbled up. Professor Balachandran and his team at the University of Maryland are exploring how noise can be used to control certain phenomena within arrays of these tiny mechanical oscillators, to change their behaviour and make them operate better than before. Their studies also have important ramifications for macro-scale mechanical systems.
