Nonlinear Dynamics Based Sensors - A New Class of Devices for System Monitoring

Carlo Famoso, Mattia Frasca, Luigi Fortuna

Abstract

Post-silicon materials like polymers and solution-based devices allow to design new types of sensors. On the other hand, the nonlinear dynamic behavior of a class of nonlinear circuits offers the possibility of conceiving devices where the nonlinearity of the circuit is exploited to realize new mechanisms or improve classical ones. In this PhD work we discuss the possibility of coupling a new class of materials with nonlinear dynamic circuits to design a new class of sensors. The results that are included are preliminary and cover a wide range of applications. In particular advanced sensors based equipment has been studied on an electromechanical system, in order to monitorize its vibrating behaviour to establish self organizing phenomenon to control the system.
