Preface

  • Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) piezoelectric nanofibers were fabricated through near-field electrospinning (NFES) to develop a flexible piezoelectric element. Innovative screen printing technolo ... Read More

  • In this paper, we propose a system for estimating the concentration of biochemical reagents through impedance measurement. In particular, we studied electrode structures that can accurately meas ... Read More

  • We propose a compact electrical-cell-substrate impedance sensing (ECIS) system. The ECIS system measures the amount of microorganisms cultivated in an incubator and monitors it in real time. Th ... Read More

  • A circuit investigation of dual-band surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters of the ladder type is proposed. The designed filter exhibits a broader bandwidth and a sharper cut-off frequency than the ... Read More

  • The DNA amplified by the conventional polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is subjected to two-step detection, electrophoresis, and gel image analysis. Recently, real-time PCR has been developed to d ... Read More
