Various polymer devices are made from thin polymer films, thick polymer films and 3D polymer microstructures. 5. 5 can also be used to construct sensing and actuating components for MEMS, just silicon and polymer can be used to build microsensors and actuators, although they act as structural materials, too. Polymer strain gauges and capacitors can serve as sensing elements for piezoresistive and capacitive microsensors (Varadan and Varadan, 1995), and electrostatic polymer microactuators have been developed from polyimide bellow structures (Minami, Morishita and Esashi, 1999).
By picking up the natural frequency variation of the resonator, the physical information that caused the strain will be sensed. 73) 2πd 2 12ρ h where f is the natural frequency of the fundamental oscillating mode, l is the resonator length, h is the resonator thickness, E is the Young’s modulus, ρ is the density of the diaphragm material and ε is the strain generated inside the resonator structure. Comparing resonant sensing with piezoresistive sensing, the resonator acts as a kind of strain gauge, the resonant strain gauge, which relates the strain to the resonant frequency.
The particle displacements of these waves would be transverse to the wave propagation direction and parallel to the plane of the surface. The frequency of operation is determined by the IDT finger spacing and the shear horizontal wave velocity for the particular substrate material. They have shown considerable promise in their application as sensors in liquid media and biosensors (Kondoh, Matsui and Shiokawa, 1993; Nakamura, Kazumi and Shimizu, 1977; Shiokawa and Moriizumi, 1987). In general the SH-SAW is sensitive to mass loading, viscosity, conductivity and the permittivity of adjacent liquid.
