Chapter 13. Bulk Acoustic Wave Sensors in Chemical Analysis

(Maria Teresa S. R. Gomes)






Bulk acoustic wave devices have been developed for the detection and quantification of a large number of compounds. Most of those works do not include an application to real samples and are poor characterized from an analytical chemistry point of view. An overview of the analytical requirements for a real application is reviewed and usual problems frequently faced by the analyst using thickness shear mode devices are presented, as well as some solutions and illustrative practical examples taken from the literature.


Keywords: bulk acoustic wave devices, thickness shear mode resonators, quartz crystal microbalance, chemical analysis.
