  author={Angelo Leo and Anna Grazia Monteduro and Silvia Rizzato and A. Ferro Milone and Giuseppe Maruccio},
Development of highly sensitive, portable and low-cost sensors for the evaluation of ethanol content in liquid is particularly important in several process monitoring, from food to pharmaceutical industry. In this respect, here we report on the design, fabrication and performances of two simple electrical devices, namely interdigitated (ID) electrodes and complementary double split ring resonator (CDSRR), for the detection of ethanol in water though impedance and perturbation resonance methods…
