Microelectrodes are widely used for monitoring neural activities in various neurobiological studies. The size of the neural electrode is an important factor in determining the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of recorded neural signals and, thereby, the recording sensitivity. Here, it is demonstrated that commercial tungsten microelectrodes can be modified with(More)
This paper presents the design and fabrication of a miniaturized hydrophone made by applying the electric field of a micro-sized piezoelectric body directly on the gate of a field-effect transistor (FET). Changes in the bound surface charge density of the piezoelectric body and the corresponding changes in the electric field in response to the applied(More)
Capacitive-type transduction is now widely used in MEMS microphones. However, its sensitivity decreases with reducing size, due to decreasing air gap capacitance. In the present study, we proposed and developed the Electret Gate of Field Effect Transistor (ElGoFET) transduction based on an electret and FET (field-effect-transistor) as a novel mechanism of(More)
We have examined the capabilities of a Tip-On-Gate of Field-Effect Transistor (ToGoFET) probe for characterization of FIB-induced damage in Si surface. A ToGoFET probe is the SPM probe which the Field Effect Transistor(FET) is embedded at the end of a cantilever and a Pt tip was mounted at the gate of FET. The ToGoFET probe can detect the surface electrical(More)
We propose a method for measuring the capacitance of a thin layer using a Tip-on-Gate of Field-Effect Transistor (ToGoFET) probe. A ToGoFET probe with a metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) with an ion-implant channel was embedded at the end of a cantilever and a Pt tip was fabricated using micro-machining. The ToGoFET probe was used(More)
