19 June 1997 Integrated force array: interface to external systems
Author Affiliations +
Integrated Force Arrays (IFAs) are thin film linear actuators which operate with substantial displacement and force. The methods of attachment of these devices to external systems are under development. Our current methods to incorporate IFAs in an scanning ultrasound imaging systems as well as a new material and method for attachment will be described.
