Title (EN) MEMS-BASED CALORIMETER, FABRICATION, AND USE THEREOF
(FR) CALORIMÈTRE À BASE DE MEMS, SA FABRICATION ET SON UTILISATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)MEMS-based calorimeter including two microchambers supported in a thin film substrate is provided. The thin film substrate includes a thermoelectric sensor configured to measure temperature differential between the two microchambers, and also includes a thermally stable and high strength polymeric diaphragm. Methods for fabricating the MEMS-based calorimeter, as well as methods of using the calorimeter to measure thermal properties of materials, such as biomolecules, or thermodynamic properties of chemical reactions or physical interactions, are also provided.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un calorimètre à base de microsystème électromécanique (MEMS) comprenant deux microchambres supportées dans un substrat en couches minces. Le substrat en couches minces comprend un capteur thermoélectrique configuré pour mesurer un différentiel de température entre les deux microchambres, et comprend également un diaphragme polymère thermiquement stable et de résistance élevée. L'invention porte également sur des procédés de fabrication du calorimètre à base de MEMS, ainsi que sur des procédés d'utilisation du calorimètre pour mesurer des propriétés thermiques de matériaux, tels que des biomolécules, ou des propriétés thermodynamiques de réactions chimiques ou d'interactions physiques.
