Abstract:

The goal of this project is to develop a new class of biosensors using carbon and polymer based micro electromechanical systems CPMEMS and a platform that incorporates multiple biodetection strategies. This report discusses the progress to date on the biosensors made from CPMEMS and the multiple strategy biodetection sensor platforms that incorporate these CPMEMS. An alternative sacrificial layer in the individual CPMEMS layer processing in being developed using a thermal release polymer. Development of a test lithography mask set and a wafer level packaging scheme in underway. Advancements in the areas of active technology in the form of sense and release experiments and the molecular bridge preparation of the CPMEMS surface have been made.
