Ultra-High Frequency (500 MHz) Capacitance Spectroscopy for Nanobiosensing

PG-1000

Active Technologies Fast Pulse Generator PG-1000 contributes in another innovative project published by IEEE Sensor Test: Ultra-High Frequency (500 MHz) Capacitance Spectroscopy for Nanobiosensing.

PG-1000

The application reports unprecedented ultra high frequency capacitance spectroscopy measurements up to 500 MHz on a nanoelectrode array for biosensing applications, which extends considerably the previous 70 MHz limit. To achieve this goal, a high-frequency adapter board and measurement system are designed to drive the sensing nanoelectrodes of an existing biochip with appropriate clocks generated by an advanced high-speed Pulse Generator (PG-1000). Experimental results in dry and in electrolyte conditions are reported. The extended frequency range enables to overcome the Debye screening cut-off frequency of electrolytes at physiological salt concentrations, thus disclosing new perspectives for single molecule detection.

Toward Intrinsic Ferroelectric Switching in Multiferroic BiFeO3

Active Technologies Fast Pulse Generator PG-1000 (sold in US in cooperation with Berkeley Nucleonics and named Model-765) contributes to the development of the physic experiment:

 

Toward Intrinsic Ferroelectric Switching in Multiferroic BiFeO3

 

Thanks to the high speed PG-1000 pulse generator, the researchers were able to access timescales very rarely accessed in pulsed, voltage-current measurements. With that product and excellent support, the researchers successfully developed and built a new experiment and experimental protocol leading to a novel publication on limits for switching BiFeO3, a promising material for next generation computer architecture.

The PG-1000 pulse generator combines a fast rise and fall time of transitions (<70 ps transition time) and 5Vpp amplitude. Architecture provides the possibility to generate advanced pulse sequences, such as double pulse or quad pulse, with fully independent timing parameters. The maximum repetition rate of Pulse Rider Pulse Generator is 800MHz and the minimum pulse width is 300 ps @ 5V
