ARC Discovery Grant


Reza Moheimani and Rick Middleton win the largest ARC Discovery grant awarded to the University of Newcastle with funding to start from 2007. The Discovery grant, “Robust Control of Electrostatic Microactuators” brings $870,000 of funding to the lab over the next five years. It is aimed at developing advanced and robust controller design methodologies for handling instabilities in electrostatic microactuators used in MEMS.
