Inkjet printing boosts nanomechanical sensors

Abstract:
Researchers from the University of Basel and IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, both in Switzerland, have used an inkjet printing technique to deposit thin layers of molecules on cantilever beams. The layers enable the beams to act as chemical or biochemical sensors. "Coating the cantilever arrays with functional sensor layers is the key to converting the micromechanical structure into nanomechanical sensors," Alexander Bietsch of the University of Basel told nanotechweb.org.
