Paper Abstract

This paper describes the simulation and design of a MEMS thermal gyroscope and optimizing the design for increased sensitivity through the use of the Comsol Multiphysics software package. Two different designs are described, and the effects of working fluid properties are explored. A prototype of this device has been fabricated using techniques for rapid prototyping of MEMS transducers.
