Using suspended nanochannel resonators (SNRs), we demonstrate measurements of mass in solution with a resolution of 27 ag in a 1 kHz bandwidth, which represents a 100-fold improvement over existing suspended microchannel resonators and, to our knowledge, is the most precise mass measurement in liquid today. The SNR consists of a cantilever that is 50 microm(More)
Physical characterization of nanoparticles is required for a wide range of applications. Nanomechanical resonators can quantify the mass of individual particles with detection limits down to a single atom in vacuum. However, applications are limited because performance is severely degraded in solution. Suspended micro- and nanochannel resonators have opened(More)
An intrinsic uncertainty in particle mass sensing with the suspended microchannel resonator results from variation in a particle's position near the free end of the resonator. To circumvent this error we employ the second flexural bending mode. This mode exhibits additional frequency peaks while particles pass over the antinode, a point where the frequency(More)
Energy contour in a sentence is one of major factors that affect the naturalness of synthetic speech. In this paper. we propose a method to control the energy contour for the enhancement in the naturalness of Korean synthetic speech. Our algorithm adopts syllable as a basic unit and predicts the peak amplitude for each syllable in a word using a neural(More)
Fluidic resonators with integrated microchannels (hollow resonators) are attractive for mass, density, and volume measurements of single micro/nanoparticles and cells, yet their widespread use is limited by the complexity of their fabrication. Here we report a simple and cost-effective approach for fabricating hollow microtube resonators. A prestructured(More)
Dissipation of mechanical energy underlies the sensitivity of many nanomechanical devices, with environmental effects often having a significant effect. One case of practical relevance is the interaction of elastic beam resonators with fluid, which is known to dramatically increase energy dissipation. Recently, we investigated energy dissipation in a(More)
Energy dissipation experienced by vibrating microcantilever beams immersed in fluid is strongly dependent on the mode of vibration, with quality factors typically increasing with mode number. Recently, we examined energy dissipation in a new class of cantilever device that embeds a microfluidic channel in its interior—the fundamental mode of vibration only(More)
This article describes tapping mode atomic force microscopy (AFM) using a heated AFM cantilever. The electrical and thermal responses of the cantilever were investigated while the cantilever oscillated in free space or was in intermittent contact with a surface. The cantilever oscillates at its mechanical resonant frequency, 70.36 kHz, which is much faster(More)
Simultaneous structural and chemical characterization of materials at the nanoscale is both an immediate need and an ongoing challenge. This article reports a route to address this need, which can be rapidly adopted by practitioners, by combining the benefits of widely available scanning probe microscopy and vibrational microspectrometry. In an atomic force(More)
