A method for measuring both the real and imaginary parts of complex shear-wave impedance Zs* for low viscosity liquids using a planar AT-quartz resonator (thickness shear) in an RF bridge network between 2 and 34 MHz, is described. This technique employs a PLL circuit and permits continuous quantitative recording of the sample impedance (probe volume below 1 ml). The mechanical vibration amplitude at the transducer-liquid interface is in the Angstrom range, preventing any heating and structuralâ€¦Â Expand
