The two graduate researchers, advised by Hanna Cho, submitted their work titled “Frequency and Stabilization in a MEMS Oscillator with 1:2 Internal Resonance.” MEMS—short for mechanical resonances in microelectronmechanical systems—can be used in a variety of applications, from transportation technologies to biomedical functions.

“We successfully implemented 1:2 internal resonance in a MEMS resonator, which was demonstrated to reduce the frequency fluctuations of a resonator by over 30 times,” said Cho of the award-winning work.

The symposium was held at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club in Naples, Florida from April 1 - 5. Attending representatives included industry leaders and research institutions from across the globe.

The MEMS work was also recognized at the IEEE International Frequency Control Symposium & European Frequency and Time Forum. There, Yu was honored as a finalist for best paper.
