Tiivistelmä

Demonstrated is a novel method to the fabrication of microfluidic devices utilizing a dual-sensor approach. The fabrication incorporates the use of poly(methyl-methacrylate) (PMMA) and inkjet-printing techniques. PMMA, a low-cost, robust material with low dielectric loss, is ideal for sensor fabrication. In addition, inkjet-printing polymer (SU-8) as a bonding layer dramatically improves the bonding strength and pressure handling. Furthermore, this system integrates two independent sensors in the same circuit, enabling concurrent calibration of two fluids. Based on the reaction in one sensor, response in another sensor for the same fluid can be predicted. The two sensors both have a sensitivity over 21 %/log(r) and a good independence in calibrating fluids. The sensor system works at microwave frequency, enabling applications in wireless sensing including various chemical analysis.
