Hybrid NEMS interfaces are the key to systems combining the benefits of highly sensitive miniaturized mechanical sensors with the vast functionalities available in electronics. In this context, we analyze diverse RF front-ends meant for interfacing high-impedance carbon nanotube based NEMS. Given the feeble signals from the NEMS, their high output impedance(More)
To foster the development of highly sensitive carbon nanotube nanoelectromechanical sensor systems, a computationally light analytical and semi-empirical model for the latter's dynamics, electromechanical and piezoresistive properties is presented. This model is the breeding ground for the subsequent design and implementation of a phase locked loop and(More)
Nurses conduct preoperative teaching to help patients cope with the adversities of surgery. Self-efficacy can predict an individual's behavior in aversive situations (eg, surgery); therefore, assessing patients' self-efficacy is one way perioperative nurses can plan patient care and help patients through the surgical experience. This study expands on the(More)
