We exploit the premises of exceptional points of degeneracy (EPDs) induced in linear time-periodic (LTP) systems to achieve extremely sensitive biosensors. The EPD is formed in a single LC resonator where the total capacitance is comprised of a time-varying capacitor in parallel to a biosensing capacitor. We use the time-periodic variation of a system parameter (e.g., capacitance) to achieve a second order EPD aiming at improving the sensitivity of liquid based radio frequency biosensors…
