Abstract

This study presents the design, fabrication, analysis and testing of a novel crescent micropump fabricated using surface micromachining technology. The pump utilizes a ring gear driven through teeth on its outer surface to drive the pumping mechanism through teeth on its inner surface. An analytical solution for the volumetric flow rate for the micropump agrees with the obtained experimental results.
