    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The authors will review the application of acoustic wave mass sensors in chemical and biological sensing with focus on quartz crystal microbalance and surface acoustic wave devices. In chemical sensing, it is unlikely that a single sensor will display a selective and reversible response to a given analyte in a mixture. Alternative strategies such as use of sensor arrays and sampling devices will be discussed to improve performance. The authors will also discuss applications of quartz crystal microbalance as biosensor in the liquid phase.
