Electronically Integrated Autonomous Microscopic Robots
Itai Cohen, Cornell University
Event Type: Physics Dept Colloquium
Time: 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar
Abstract: What would we be able to do if we could build electronically integrated machines at a scale of 100 microns? At this scale, semiconductor devices are small enough that we could put the computational power of the spaceship Voyager onto a machine that could be injected into the body. Such robots could have on board detectors, power sources, and processors that enable them to sense, interact, and control their local environment. In this talk I will describe several cutting-edge technologies we are developing to achieve this vision. Note: this talk will be in person only and will not be taped nor put onto YouTube.
