  • Novel readout electronics for TSM viscosity sensors

    In this contribution, we describe a novel electronic readout circuit for TSM resonators, which can be used, e.g., for viscosity sensing in liquids. In contrast to conventionally utilized oscillator circuits, the present circuit eliminates the disturbing influence of the static capacitance of the sensor by means of a synchronous detector. The sensor is externally fed by a voltage controlled oscillator, which is tuned to the fundamental resonance frequency by means of a control circuit utilizing a frequency modulation of the VCO signal. When the control loop has settled, either the obtained resonance frequency or the damping of the sensor can be used as output signals providing a measure for the viscosity.

We discuss the concept in detail and illustrate its performance by means of experimental results.

  • Theoretical model on the interaction of a vibrating beam and the surrounding viscous fluid with applications to density and viscosity sensors

    A new theoretical model on the frequency response of a vibrating beam immersed in a viscous fluid is developed. An integral equation is derived from the Navier-Stokes equation for an incompressible fluid, where the advection term has been neglected This equation is valid for any planar shape and characterizes the pressure distribution on the surface. The equation of a vibrating cantilever beam under the effect of a given driving force and the newly obtained fluid reaction is then solved. This method provides a means of calculating the frequency response for the Schlumberger DV-MEMS sensor.

  • Investigation of higher mode excitation of resonant mass density and viscosity sensors

    The application of resonant devices for mass density and viscosity sensing by evaluating their change of quality factor and resonance frequency upon immersion in a sample liquid was already reported in literature with increasing amount of publications in the last years. Usually, these resonant devices are operated at a single measurable and characteristic resonant mode. In this work, we investigate the operation of recently devised sensors at two measurable modes, show experimental results and discuss potential advantages of recording more than one mode in case of resonant mass density and viscosity sensors.

  • Sensitivity analysis of multi-layered C-axis inclined zigzag zinc oxide thin-film resonators as viscosity sensors

    This paper presents a theoretical analysis of a new zigzag C-axis inclined multi-layer ZnO thin-film bulk acoustic wave resonator (FBAR) as a viscosity sensor to monitor the lubrication performance of engine oil and other liquids. Free vibration and forced vibration for the FBAR loaded with liquids are analyzed. Equations necessary to calculate the sensitivity are derived. The numerical analysis shows that as the number of layers increases, the absolute sensitivity increases as well. The influences on the sensitivity of C-axis inclined angle, Q-factor, and thickness are also investigated. The results provide a foundation for further design of multi-layer FBAR viscosity sensors.

The measuring principle, the device setups, complete analytical models relating the (known) input to the (measured) output signals as well as first measurements obtained with the discussed devices are presented.

  • Practical design of Love wave viscosity sensors using the eighth dimensional matrix formulation

    There are increasing research activities on Love wave devices in biochemical sensing application due to its high sensitivity and low acoustic damping. This paper aims at practical design of Love wave devices for liquid viscosity sensing based on effective permittivity approach and eighth dimension matrix formulation. First, we adopted the effective permittivity approach to calculate and discuss electromechanical coupling coefficient and temperature dependence of the 0th-order Love wave in ZnO/quartz layered structures. Besides, since the measured targets are liquid, reducing wave attenuation and increasing sensitivity become two important issues for the optimum design of a Love wave sensor. To take into account the effect of liquid viscosity on the device sensitivity, we adopted the eighth dimension matrix formulation to calculate phase velocity dispersion and wave attenuation of Love wave devices loaded with water. Finally, we also compared the calculated sensitivity with the existing experimental results. Results show that the proposed approach provided a satisfactory prediction of the device sensitivity of a Love wave liquid sensor
