Title: MEMS; Polymers; Bioscience; Rheology
Description: The NIST MEMS-based rheometer (click to retrieve mpg file of the device in action.) The moving plate is controlled by resistance heating elements in the chevron-like structure at the top; expansion and contraction of the vanes causes the plate to move up and down. Central square where the sample would rest is approximately 500 micrometers across.
