6D-2 MEMS-Enabled Miniaturized Particulate Matter Monitor Employing 1.6 GHz Aluminum Nitride Thin-Film Bulk Acoustic Wave Resonator (FBAR) and Thermophoretic Precipitator


We describe a miniaturized MEMS particulate matter (PM) monitor that employs the deposition of particulates from a sample stream onto a 1.6 GHz piezoelectric thin-film bulk acoustic wave resonator (FBAR) by means of thermophoresis, and determination of the mass deposited by measuring the resonant frequency shift of a Pierce oscillator.
