  11. In-liquid Bulk Acoustic Wave Resonators for Biosensing Applications

    27 May 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Girish Rughoobur

    Gravimetric sensors based on thin-film bulk acoustic wave (BAW) resonators operating between 1-5 GHz have tremendous potential as biosensors because they are inexpensive, label-free, fast and highly sensitive. The two main challenges in this objective are: the conventional longitudinal mode...

  12. Mechanical Exfoliation as a Route to Nanomanufacturing of 2D van der Waals Bonded

    11 May 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Daryl Chrzan

    In this talk I present a mechanical exfoliation method able to reliably produce large patterned monolayer samples and place them with upon a substrate in desired locations. The method relies on the epitaxial strain imposed upon the layer to be exfoliated by the deposition of a thin metallic film.
