NANOSENSORS Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensor (MSS) video uploaded

A new video about NANOSENSORS™ Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensors (MSS) has been uploaded on the NANOSENSORS™ youtube channel.

The NANOSENSORS™ MSS is a piezoresistive nanomechanical sensor: a silicon membrane platform supported with four beams with integrated piezoresistors. This MEMS sensor is very versatile and primarily designed for R&D in the fields of electronic nose/ odor sensing/ olfactory system. It can also be utilized for material assessment application and measurements of physical parameters in, for example, torque magnetometry.

New Method for Torque Magnetometry Using a Commercially Available Membrane-Type Surface Stress Sensor

In this article the authors present a  new method for torque magnetometry by using a commercially available membrane-type surface stress sensor (MSS) – the NANOSENSORS MSS. This sensor has a silicon membrane supported by four beams in which piezoresistive paths are integrated. Although originally developed as a gas sensor, it can be used for torque measurement by modifying its on-chip aluminum interconnections. The authors demonstrate the magnetic-torque measurement of submillimeter-sized crystals at low temperature and in strong magnetic fields. This MSS can observe de-Haas–van-Alphen oscillation, which confirms that it can be an alternative tool for self-sensitive microcantilevers.
