Prof. Patrick Mercier Energy-Efficient Microsystems lab:
The Energy-Efficient Microsystems Lab @ UCSD, led by Prof. Patrick Mercier, endeavors to imagine, create, prototype, and test systems for applications that can only
be realized through extreme miniaturization of electronic devices. Since batteries nearly always limit system size, miniaturization requires either innovation in energy
efficiency, or in ways to increase the energy available to the system. Applications targeted include biomedical electronics and ubiquitous computing/sensing.
