The influence of quartz plate roughening on the dynamic parameters of quartz resonators has been studied. For this aim AT-cut quartz plates with a diameter of 8 mm, after a standard technological cleaning, are subjected to treatment with abrasive of varying grain sizes: 3, 7, 14 and 20 μm. Piezoquartz resonators are fabricated on these plates with 4 mm Au(More)
The organic vapor sensitivity of a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) with an epoxy resin-carbon soot coating designed to be tolerant to humidity is reported. This is achieved using nonengulfed, but attached, hydrophobic carbon soot nanoparticles, coated in an irregular surface topography composed of islands and cavities. The root mean square roughness(More)
