“We’re not as healthy as we should be.” That’s what Fitbit CEO and co-founder James Park said at Thursday’s TIME 100 Health Summit, where MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle interviewed him about the company’s future in the health care space, the impact of wearables and just how active Fitbit’s 30 million active users really are. Ruhle talked with Park about Fitbit’s position as one of the first major wearables company to have gone public, one that led the charge in terms of mass market adoption but has lost ground to competitors offering more advanced wearable devices, as well as ...

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators A: PhysicalAuthor(s): Ssu-Han Chen, Aron Michael, Chee Yee KwokAbstractThis paper presents the fabrication and characterization of a high performance piezoelectrically driven micro-lens actuator. The fabrication method involves controlling the residual stresses in the structure to predefine the initial deflection of the actuator, resulting in a larger actuation stroke. The residual stress control exploits the unique properties of ultra-high vacuum e-beam evaporated film to form thick tensile polysilicon as the actuator structural layer. This is...
