Review Questions:Explain why percolation resistance is area independent?Why is the physical origin of the distribution of percolation resistance?How would the ratio of hard and soft breakdown change with an auxiliary parallel capacitor in constant voltage stress? Explain. What is the evidence...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors II
27 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, there is a review of the previous lecture of SPR Sensors along with Reflection Interference Spectroscopy. We learned that as we go to longer wavelengths, the refractive index is more constant. Then, we looked at...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors III
In this lecture, we finished our discussion over optical sensors. We started with discussing a photon moving between 2 mirrors with 100% efficiency, the photon gets to "sample" the media between the mirrors with no loss. This was...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Impedance Based Sensors I
In this lecture, we were introduced to the concept of a new sensor called the impedance-based Biosensor. Biomolecules are originally charged and therefore there is a need to determine the charge of the molecule before using it on...
