    Micromachined silicon sensors employing resonant sensing offer many potential performance benefits over alternative piezoresistive and capacitive techniques. Resonant devices are, however inherently more complicated to design and fabricate. This article provides a brief overview of the principles of resonant sensing and describes a design study involving double-ended tuning-fork (DETF) resonant st... View full abstract»

    The widespread use of photonic systems having microwave modulation bandwidths, coupled with the inclusion of photonic components in microwave and millimetre-wave systems, is creating a demand for efficient characterization techniques. In particular, new tools will be required for the measurement of fundamental quantities such as the microwave frequency response, bandwidth, gain and return loss of ... View full abstract»

    Small samples of DNA can be replicated (amplified) using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to produce sufficient quantities for analysis in the diagnosis of disease and in forensics. Low-cost single-shot PCR devices are desirable to avoid potential contamination of the sample reaction with products of a previous reaction. After explaining the principles of PCR amplification and optical detection... View full abstract»

    Manchester encoding is widely used to provide clock and data information simultaneously via a single connection. There are two opposing-and incompatible-definitions of Manchester encoding where the rising edge in the centre of the data bit indicates either a logic “1” or alternatively a logic “0”. This paper resolves the differences and identifies the originator of the meth... View full abstract»
