Doubly clamped beams or string resonators made by pyrolytic carbon can potentially be used for various applications such as temperature sensors, and for mass and force detection. The working principle of those devices based on the shift of resonance frequency due to external stimuli. There are many research about string resonators about materials and fabrication process to create the string resonators. Recently, pyrolytic carbon shows promising properties as material for string resonators. Pyrolytic carbon is a conductive material and this feature can be exploited to obtain a double functional sensor combining electrochemistry and mass sensing.  

This new project involves the design and fabrication of conductive pyrolytic carbon string resonators. The fabricated sensors will be characterized by both resonant measurement and electrochemistry. The conductive properties of the carbon will then be used to deposit nanoparticles on the carbon resonators by electrochemical deposition methods and the nanomaterials will be characterized using resonant mass sensing. Finally, the deposited nanomaterials will be tested in biosensing applications.
