Zhang, Y., Bauer, R., Jackson, J. C., Whitmer, W. M., Windmill, J. F. C., & Uttamchandani, D. (2018). A low-frequency dual-band operational microphone mimicking the hearing property of Ormia Ochracea. Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, 27(4), (667-676). doi:10.1109/jmems.2018.2845680. ISSN 1057-7157

This paper introduces a directional MEMS microphone designed for hearing aid applications appropriate to low-frequency hearing impairment, inspired by the hearing mechanism of a fly, the female Ormia ochracea. It uses both piezoelectric and capacitiv... Read More
