In this study, Chiral Metamaterial Sensor (CMS), which is designed by utilizing a Split Ring Resonators (SRR) has been employed to reveal the two different types of sensor applications by experimentally and numerically. These applications include purity demonstration of methanol, ethanol and isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and fuel adulteration applications for petrol. All of the validations have been realized by measuring the complex permittivity values and reflection coefficients by using a vector network analyzer and a sample holder. For simulation, FIT based simulation program is employed. Both numerical and experimental study results are complying with each other. Sample holder which is developed in this study for microfluidic measurements can easily be tuned for other microfluidic sensor applications thanks to its unique design. Having 280MHz bandwidth with -40dB signal level indicates that the proposed structure is highly sensitive and gives a linear output according to purity and adulteration applications. Whereas, there are many metamaterial researches on purity applications in literature, this is the first study that investigates the purity of methanol, ethanol, isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and fuel adulteration of petrol by using a novel chiral metamaterial sensor designed specifically for the proposed applications.

A new approach was developed using a combination of a conducting polymer; poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) with the electrochemically produced polymer of N-ferrocenyl-3-(1H-pyrrol-1-yl) aniline, (PFcPyBz) layer for the enzyme scaffolding resulting in excellent analytical parameters. To organize such a surface, graphite electrode was coated with a PEDOT layer and it was used as a transducer for electrochemical deposition of the polymer of a newly synthesized FcPyBz monomer. Using a PEDOT layer as the...

We propose a design of a metamaterial based sensor to be used in various applications including micro-fluid, strain and rotation sensing. The structure has a simple geometry composed of a single circular split ring resonator (CSRR) and it is possible to adjust the resonance frequency in the region of desired band. The resonance frequency is carefully selected so that the materials to be sensed have linear dielectric curves at that particular frequency range which iscrucial to design accurate sensing charact...
Metamaterial Absorber Based Multifunctional Sensors
Sabah, Cumali (The Electrochemical Society, 2016-01-01)
In this paper, several important applications of a metamaterial absorber (MA) based sensors such as temperature, pressure, moisture, and density are presented. Since the sensing ability mostly considers the resonance frequency, the frequency range where the resonance shifts occur linearly or non-linearly depending on the temperature, pressure, moisture, and density changes is selected carefully. The model is composed of X shaped resonators (XSR), dielectric substrate, the sensing layer, dielectric substrate...

In this work a novel approach was reported for glucose detection using disposable paper based electrodes consisting graphene modified with a conducting polymer, glucose oxidase (GOx) and gold nanoparticles. For the first time, a conducting polymer; poly(9,9-di-(2-ethylhexyl)-fluorenyl-2,7-diyl)-end capped with 2,5-diphenyl-1,2,4-oxadiazole (PFLO) was spread over graphene coated papers and used as a matrix for glucose detection. To finalize the desired biosensor, the enzyme GOx was immobilized with gold nano...

A novel shaped metamaterial sensor application which is designed to operate in X band is proposed. A new sample holder for easy operation is designed and placed just behind the proposed structure in X band. Since the adulteration of fuel with kerosene and ethanol is known method. This study is developed to give an alternative approach to the adulteration sensing studies. By having higher quality factors and wider bandwidth, when it is compared with similar metamaterial studies, proposed structure and design...
