Recent work has shown that moisture diffusion coefficients can be measured in thin polymer films through monitoring changes in permittivity with microdielectric sensors. The sensor is constructed in silicon and consists of an interdigitated electrode and two depletion mode field effect transistors. When operated in conjunction with appropriate external circuitry, the sensor measures dielectric constant and loss factor of any material placed on the SiO2 insulator and aluminum electrodes. The dielectri…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
