Enjoying the IEEE SENSORS 2023 conference in Vienna, Austria.

A great opportuniy to meet colleagues and friends and to share our recent results on a biaxial xz MEMS capacitive accelerometer with in-plane differential readout.

If you are interested, give a look to our paper recently published on IEEE Sensors Letters
C. Galimberti, G. Gattere, M. Riani, V. Zega ‘A new design strategy for innovative MEMS xz-biaxial accelerometer’ IEEE Sensors Letters 7 (10), (2023) 2503504.

Thanks to my co-authors Chiara Galimberti, Gabriele Gattere, Manuel Riani and to the Joint Research Platform STEAM between STMicroelectronics and Politecnico di Milano that supported the project.
