Ocean turbulent kinetic energy dissipation rate is an essential parameter in marine environmental monitoring. Numerous probes have been designed to measure the turbulent kinetic energy dissipation rate in the past, and most of them utilize piezoelectric ceramics as the sensing element. In this paper, an ocean turbulent kinetic energy dissipation rate measurement probe utilizing a microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) piezoresistor as the sensing element has been designed and tested. The triangle cantilever beam and piezoresistive sensor chip are the core components of the designed probe. The triangle cantilever beam acts as a velocity-force signal transfer element, the piezoresistive sensor chip acts as a force-electrical signal transfer element, and the piezoresistive sensor chip is bonded on the triangle cantilever beam. One end of the triangle cantilever beam is a nylon sensing head which contacts with fluid directly, and the other end of it is a printed circuit board which processe.....
