Recent years has seen the development of integrated ultrasound transducers based on silicon technology. Using silicon micromachining allows for fabrication of capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers (CMUTs). Such CMUT transducers use fairly standard integrated circuit fabrication technology to make very small ultrasound transducers, which are grouped to form larger elements. Each of these devices have a thin plate that can be actuated by electrostatic forces thus generating an ultrasound pulse
Candidates should have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree

Apply online A multidisciplinary research project in the field of microfabricated transducers for ultrasound imaging is being established in collaboration at the Department of Health Technology at the Technical University of Denmark. Responsibilities and tasks Recent years has seen the development of integrated ultrasound transducers based on silicon technology. Using silicon micromachining allows for fabrication of capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers (CMUTs). Such CMUT transducers use fairly standard integrated circuit fabrication technology to make very small ultrasound transducers, which are grouped to form larger elements. Each of these devices have a thin plate that can be actuated by electrostatic forces thus generating an ultrasound pulse. The technology is still in its early stages and can be further advanced, but the potential capabilities are large. It is here possible to fabricate any number of elements in any kind of configuration. In this project, there will be special emphasis on new microfabrication techniques suitable for CMUTs designed for laparoscopy. The purpose of this project is to fabricate CMUT probes that are suitable for ultrasound imaging using the DTU NanoLab clean room facility. The developed CMUTs are integrated in a probe designed for laparoscopy. DTU NanoLab has a state of the art cleanroom suited for fabrication of micromachined structures. The project is in collaboration with the company BK Medical. Qualifications Candidates should have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree.
