  • Model based conductance measurements design for thermally modulated sensor arrays

    This paper describes a model-based conductance measurement design for a metal oxide gas sensor based on tin oxide. The model accounts a conductance measurement system and a corresponding temperature control system. It is demonstrated that the chemical analysis capability with metal oxide gas sensors based on tin oxide can be considerably enhanced when the sensors are under thermo-cyclic operation mode. The sensor response is expressed by the conductance-overtime profiles. Based on preliminary studies, the sensor has shown wide range variation of resistance values. In order to interface this kind of sensor, a direct conductance measurement circuit with gain-ranging signal processing as well as temperature control system is developed for multi metal oxide gas sensor arrays. The system is modeled and analyzed in Simulink and then implemented in an embedded system.

    Our team has developed a systematic process to rapidly construct Carbon Nanotube (CNT) sensors by combining DEP and micro-robotics technologies. Arrays of CNT sensors were fabricated on MUMPs chips using this systematic process and the CNT sensor characteristics were found to be very consistent with individual CNT sensors fabricated using basic manual DEP manipulation process. We have shown that the average time to fabricate CNT sensor using this process is ~1 sec, which means that potentially 100,000 CNT components could be built in 24 hours .

  • Robust beamforming based on wiener filter for circular sensor arrays

    A robust wiener-filer beamformer on the circular sensor arrays (CWFB), which is an efficient and robust method, is proposed in this article. The weighted vector will be solved through an unique way, which is derived from the fact that the noise covariance matrix of circular sensor arrays is a circulant matrix. Using the individual feature, the solution is exchanged to solve the one-dimensional wiener filter. It can be processed efficiently in frequency domain. However, the circular characteristics of the noise covariance matrix can lead to extreme sensitivity to random errors. In this article, by adding regularization coefficient, the robustness of CWFB is to be improved. Simulation results demonstrate the more robust and efficient superiority of the proposed CWFB than the conventional beamformer.

  • Optimal analysis for sensor-target geometries of linear sensor arrays in UWSN

    Considering that the bearing measurement noise is distance-dependent in UWSN, this paper studies the sensortarget geometries optimization of linear sensor arrays and presents the optimal localization via noisy bearing measurements. As for the three constrained scenarios of linear sensor arrays, we analyze the optimal sensor-target geometries in terms of the corresponding Fisher information matrix determinant. We remark the methods for obtaining the optimal sensor-target geometries in fixed uniform linear sensor arrays. Then the optimal sensor-target geometries in the Non-fixed uniform linear sensor arrays for two sensors and the ones in the Non-Uniform linear sensor arrays are proved to be isosceles triangles. The isosceles triangles in the two cases are the same when the bearing measurement noise models are the same. For the length of sides of the isosceles triangle, it depends on the bearing measurement noise models and the positions of the target. Finally the comparisons of the three constrained scenarios show that the optimal sensor- target geometries in the Non-Uniform linear sensor arrays can gain the best localization performance.

  • A post processing approach for manufacturing high-density stretchable sensor arrays

    A method for fabricating stretchable sensor arrays consisting of rigid islands attached to a stretchable membrane is proposed. The method utilizes a CMOS compatible post processing approach, where the sensor elements and the underlying electronics are fabricated first, followed by a sequence of etching steps and polymer spin coating that result in the formation of the stretchable array. The elements of the array are connected by free-standing interconnects that are prefabricated in the metal stack of the CMOS. The presented fabrication results demonstrate the feasibility of manufacturing of fine- pitch, high density arrays where the interconnects are completely separated from the stretchable substrate allowing for high stretchability.

  • Development of potentiometric miniature gas sensor arrays feasible for small olfactory chips and gas recognition from their response patterns

    In this study, we propose a novel sensing device for small olfactory chips which can be installed on mobile such as smart phone. The device comprises gas-sensitive films deposited on surface potential sensor arrays, which is integrated in a single chip with the area of 7.3 mm2. The chip has 128 × 128 elements with the element size of 37.30 × 37.30 pm2. Three kinds of the gas- sensitive film were separately deposited on the sensor arrays. Different responses among these gas-sensitive films were obtained for ethanol, ammonia, and acetic acid, and these gases were successfully recognized from the response characteristics of each of these gas-sensitive films. These results indicate the promising property of the proposed device as a small olfaction chip.

  • Inertial and Magnetic-Field Sensor Arrays - Capabilities and Challenges

    Today, thanks to the development of micro-scale low-cost accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers, it is possible to construct compact motion- sensor arrays with hundreds of sensing elements. These arrays, as well as providing a high performance-to-price ratio, can also provide new measurement capabilities and enable the development of smart sensors that adapt to the usage conditions. This paper gives an overview of the capabilities enabled by the stochastic, component, temporal, and spatial information diversity that an array of inertial or magnetic field sensors provide. The main challenges in the practical realization of these types of arrays are described.

  • CMOS compatible gas sensor arrays for hostile environments

    This study demonstrates the first SiC-based gas sensor array, which is compatible with CMOS processing and capable of discriminating between the constituents of mixed gas species under harsh environments. The oxides, HfO2and TiO2, have been formed using identical processing conditions, enabling the realization of an array, which can be monolithically integrated with amplifier circuitry. Furthermore, a comparison is made between catalytic gate contacts of Pt and Pd. Exposure of the SiC-based (MIS configuration) gas sensors to environments containing mixtures of H2and O2, reveals that the gas sensitivity depends on both the dielectric and contact materials. It is this observed difference in response that facilitates the creation of a resilient sensor arrays, which can operate at 300°C.
