Birth of Membrane-type Surface stress Sensor

“My background is surface science and my first interest in sensors was triggered in 2007 during my stay as a visiting scientist at the University of Basel,” says Genki Yoshikawa, Group Leader at the International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (WPI-MANA), at the National Institute of Materials Science (NIMS). “I worked in Dr. Christoph Gerber’s group. I learned a lot from him and his colleagues about cantilever array sensors. [...]
