The Impedance analysis technique complimented with curve fitting software was used to monitor changes in film properties of Thickness Shear Mode (TSM) resonator on vapour exposure. The approach demonstrates how sensor selectivity can be achieved through unique changes in film viscosity caused by organic vapour adsorption. View Full-Text
