Micromachined Resonators in Biomedical Sensing: Only a Matter of Time!

Srinivas Tadigadapa  (Professor and Chair, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Northeastern University)

Microelectromechanical resonators are rapidly emerging into a major class of devices that span applications space from clocking, biochemical sensing, and smart switching devices. Micromachined resonators are available in many forms from acoustic wave resonators, electromechanical and flexure resonators, and optical resonators, and can span frequency ranges from a few hundred kilohertz into terahertz. Resonators are also at the heart of micromachined gyroscopes, in a number of chemical and biosensors, and most recently have been used in the demonstration of zero-power smart sensors.

Topics covered include:
  • Examining the role of resonators in various sensing applications
  • Approaches towards designing the next generation of biomedical and point of care sensors based upon ideas of crowd sourcing
  • How these approaches are capable of improving the time to market for such devices which have typically taken upwards of a decade making the commercialization of such devices by start-ups and small businesses a real challenge
