BUZSAW Medical Device

BUZSAW Medica Device


Joel Therrien of UMass Lowell’s Electrical & Computer Engineering department has developed a QCM/SAW based acoustic wave (AW) device that addresses the limitations of current commercial technology, the linear SAW, maximizing the surface area of the sensor and eliminating the need to phase match each sensor. This has been accomplished by eliminating the need for the large number of repeated electrode pairs and migrating from a linear to circular design to enable self-alignment.
