In this study, a fabrication method utilizing parylene bonding for gravimetric resonant based mass sensors is presented. First, parylene bonding was experimentally tested and compared with the literature. Average shear strength was measured as 16.3 MPa (sigma=3MPa). Then, resonators located on top of a microchannel for real-time detection were fabricated using the presented method. Simulations and experiments verify proper operation of the fabricated resonators, and the applicability of the method for fabricating similar resonant based sensors.

A parylene coating based room temperature wafer-level attachment method for MEMS integration with zero applied force
Beker, Levent; Zorlu, Ozge; Külah, Haluk (2014-08-15)
This paper reports a wafer-level attachment method using parylene as an interlayer material for integrating various shaped and fragile substrates into MEMS processes. In the proposed method, the substrates are placed on a handle wafer containing pillars and perforations, and coated with a standard parylene deposition process realized at room temperature, with no applied force. The substrate and the handle wafer are attached to each other via formation of a parylene interlayer. Only poor attachment is observ...
A laterally resonating gravimetric sensor with uniform mass sensitivity and high linearity
Eroglu, D.; Bayraktar, E.; Külah, Haluk (2011-09-01)
In this paper, a laterally resonating gravimetric sensor with high linearity and uniform mass sensitivity is presented for biochemical sensor applications including rare-cell detection. The sensor utilizes symmetrically placed, balanced, folded spring beam structures to ensure lateral motion of the proof mass and limit the displacement difference between the proof mass center and edges. The dynamic mass sensitivity range of the resonator is increased by using the above mentioned properties of the resonators...
A Novel Method for Fabricating MEMS Three-Axis Accelerometers using Low Temperature Au-Sn Eutectic Bonding
Tez, Serdar; Torunbalci, Mustafa Mert; Akın, Tayfun (2016-11-03)
This paper presents a novel method for the fabrication of three-axis capacitive MEMS accelerometers by using low-temperature Au-Sn eutectic bonding that is applied to form a glass-silicon-glass multi-stack. The proposed method provides the implementation of individual in-plane and out-of-plane accelerometer elements in the same die using a glass-silicon-glass multi-stack structure formed at temperatures as low as 300 degrees C while still ensuring the advantages of the previous approaches such as the voltag...
A Wireless Passive Sensing System for Displacement/Strain Measurement in Reinforced Concrete Members
Ozbey, Burak; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET; DEMİR, Hilmi Volkan; ALTINTAŞ, AYHAN; Kurç, Özgür (2016-04-01)
In this study, we show a wireless passive sensing system embedded in a reinforced concrete member successfully being employed for the measurement of relative displacement and strain in a simply supported beam experiment. The system utilizes electromagnetic coupling between the transceiver antenna located outside the beam, and the sensing probes placed on the reinforcing bar (rebar) surface inside the beam. The probes were designed in the form of a nested split-ring resonator, a metamaterial-based structure ...
A Five Layer One-Dimensional PEMFC Model with Detailed Electrode Kinetics
Ficicilar, B.; Eroğlu, İnci; Nguyen, T. V. (2010-10-01)
In this study, a non-isothermal, two-phase, one-dimensional, and steady state proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell model is developed to investigate the detailed electrode kinetics in the anode and cathode catalytic regions and the effects of these reaction mechanisms on the performance of a PEM fuel cell. Langmuir-Butler-Volmer (LBV) type reaction rate expressions are suggested for both anode and cathode electrochemical reactions. A two-phase energy balance approach is used to catch the thermal transpo...
