Mass-sensitive electro-acoustic devices such as surface acoustic wave (SAW) micro-balances, capable to operate with aqueous media are particularly favorable for the development of biosensors. Their dimensions and physical properties offer a large potential in biological fluid investigations, especially for measuring physical phenomenon (mass deposition,(More)
A series of open-chain pentapyrroles and sapphyrins with highly electron-withdrawing substituents (CN, CF3, CO2Me) on the meso-phenyl rings were synthesized and characterized as to their spectral properties, protonation reactions and electrochemistry in nonaqueous media. The investigated compounds are represented as (Ar)4PPyH3 and (Ar)4SapH3 where PPy and(More)
Detecting chemical species in gas phase has recently received an increasing interest mainly for security control, trying to implement new systems allowing for extended dynamics and reactivity. In this work, an open-loop interrogation strategy is proposed to use radio-frequency acoustic transducers as micro-balances for that purpose. The resulting system is(More)
Laser irradiation of a mixture of single-element micro/nanomaterials may lead to their alloying and fabrication of multi-element structures. In addition to the laser induced alloying of particulates in the form of micro/nanopowders in ambient atmosphere (which forms the basis of the field of additive manufacturing technology), another interesting problem is(More)
The present study presents the use of high frequency ultrasound (500 kHz, 25 W) for 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) electropolymerization in aqueous medium in order to investigate its effects on conducting polymer properties. It was shown that mass transfer increases under ultrasound irradiation which improved electropolymerization and the comparison with(More)
Laser ablation of bulk target materials in liquids has been established as an alternative method for the synthesis of nanoparticles colloidal solutions mainly due to the fact that the synthesized nanoparticles have bare, ligand-free surfaces since no chemical precursors are used for their synthesis. InSb is a narrow band gap semiconductor which has the(More)
The effects of high frequency ultrasound (500kHz) on pyrrole electropolymerization in sodium perchlorate aqueous medium have been investigated. Cyclic voltametry studies showed that there is no influence on pyrrole oxidation potential. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) imaging, and mechanical and optical profiling, revealed thinner, denser and more(More)
This paper presents theoretical and experimental developments for the implementation of surface acoustic waves (SAW) sensors able to detect small concentrations of anhydride fluorhydric (HF) acid in air. Solutions based on the use of surface transverse waves (STW) on quartz (YXlt)/36 degrees/90 degrees have been analyzed to evaluate their sensitivity to HF.(More)
