Abstract : This final report provides technical information on the design, performance, and fabrication of laminar amplifiers and sensors. Standard amplifier designs and formats are presented which allow the user to select amplifier characteristics most suitable for each specific application. Various methods for fabrication of elements are described and information relating to the effects of fabrication inaccuracies are presented in this report. The laminar jet angular rate sensor is described and the advantages of applying laminar fluidics to the vast field of sensors is shown. Several circuit arrangements and the performance achieved with these circuits are presented. Charts and other reference material are also included. (Author)
