THz Mass Load Sensor

  • This technology uses mechanical-electromagnetic resonant frequencies to determine the mass of an object.
  • The object attaches to nanostructures formed on the substrate included in the mass sensor.

Abstract
Novel terahertz mass load sensor useful for determining the mass of objects and changes in physical properties of thin films, ellipsometry.

Technology Description

This technology is a terahertz mass load sensor and method formeasuring minute mass quantities.This sensor uses light and resonance frequencies to determine the mass of the object attached to the nanostructures of the mass sensor. The mass of the object is determined based on the amount of change in the mechanical-electromagnetic resonant frequencies.
