A Single-Input, Single-Output (SISO) Microcantilever Sensor

IntroductionIn recent years microcantilever structures have gained wide acceptance for use as physical, chemical and biological sensors. Such sensors consist of a silicon or poly silicon beam coated with a substance that activates the surface such that it will absorb the material to be sensed. As the target material is absorbed, the mass, and thus the...
