This paper presents the design, fabrication and preliminary characterization of highly sensitive MEMS-based Xylophone Bar Magnetometers (XBMs) realized in imec’s poly-SiGe MEMS technology. Key for our Lorentz force driven capacitively sensed resonant sensor are the combination of reasonably high Q-factor and conductivity of imec’s poly-SiGe, our optimized multiphysics sensor design targeting the maximization of the Q-factor in a wide temperature range as well as our proprietary monolithic above-CMOS integration and packaging schemes. Prototypes 3-axis devices were fabricated and characterized. We present optical vibrometer and electrical S-parameter measurements of XBMs performed in vacuum with a reference magnet at increasing sensor separation. The optical oscillation amplitude is well correlated with the magnetic field amplitude. The electrical 2-port measurements, 1st port as Lorentz force actuator and 2nd port as capacitive sensor, also reproduces the designed magnetic field dependence. This opens the way towards the on-chip integration of small footprint extremely sensitive magnetometers. [less ▲]

Block copolymers of the ABA type, where B is polybutadiene (PBD) and A is poly(ethyl methacrylate) (PEMA), poly(tert-butyl methacrylate) (P-t-BMA), poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), or poly(isobornyl methacrylate) (PIBMA), have been successfully synthesized by sequential anionic polymerization of butadiene and methacrylates with the diadduct of tert-butyllithium to m-diisopropenylbenzene as a difunctional initiator. Block copolymers of a narrow molecular weight distribution (1.10) have been analyzed by differential scanning calorimetry, transmission electron microscopy, and dynamic mechanical analysis. These materials are phase-separated and have high mechanical performances. Special attention has been paid to the service temperature of these thermoplastic elastomers in comparison with a styrene−butadiene−styrene (SBS) triblock copolymer. The upper service temperature (UST) has been estimated from the temperature dependence of the tensile properties in the 25−150 °C range and found to change with the outer blocks. Polystyrene (Tg = 100°C) is at the origin of the lower UST, which is however comparable to PEMA (Tg = 90 °C) and P-t-BMA (Tg = 116 °C) containing triblock copolymers of similar molecular weight and composition. PMMA (Tg = 132 °C) outer blocks increase the UST of the triblocks, which is further increased by hydrogenation of the PBD midblock. The higher UST has been found for a PIBMA (Tg = 202 °C)-containing triblock copolymer that shows an ultimate tensile strength higher than 2 MPa at 150 °C. [less ▲]

A series of poly[methyl methacrylate (M)-b-styrene (S)-b-butadiene (B)-b-S-b-M], or MSBSM, pentablock copolymers have been successfully synthesized by sequential living anionic polymerization initiated with the diadduct of tert-butyllithium (t-BuLi) onto m-diisopropenylbenzene (m-DIB) in a cyclohexane/diethyl ether mixture for the butadiene and styrene polymerization at room temperature and in a cyclohexane/THF mixture for the MMA polymerization at −78 °C. All the pentablock copolymers have a monomodal and narrow molecular weight distribution (Mw/Mn < 1.20), and their weight composition varies from 11 to 55% M, 18 to 55% S, and 15 to 64% B. Toluene-cast films of these copolymers have been analyzed by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). All these materials show a phase separation of the soft B component from the hard S and M blocks, which cannot, however, be distinguished one from each other by DSC or DMA. Indeed, a single transition is observed for the binary hard phase at a temperature intermediate between the glass transition temperature of polystyrene (PS) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA). In addition to classical phase morphologies, such as cylindrical and lamellar phase organization, two nonclassical morphologies, i.e., catenoid−lamellar and strut phase structures have been observed by TEM. The phase morphology strongly depends on the pentablock composition and any chemical modification of blocks. For instance, the cylindrical morphology, characteristic of an MSBSM copolymer containing equal amounts of hard and soft phases, is changed into a lamellar morphology upon hydrogenation of the B midblock. Copolymers of a relatively low hard phase content typically behave as thermoplastic elastomers of high ultimate tensile strength (ca. 30 MPa) and elongation at break (ca. 900%). These mechanical properties, however, depend on the casting solvent. [less ▲]

Anionic random and block copolymerization of isobornyl methacrylate (IBMA) and methyl methacrylate (MMA) has been studied in THF at −78 °C by using (1,1-diphenyl-3,3-dimethylbutyl)lithium (DDBLi) as initiator in the presence of LiCl. The random copolymerization of MMA and IBMA has also been carried out at 0 °C, all the other conditions being kept unchanged. Poly[poly(IBMA)-b-poly(BD)-b-poly(IBMA)] (IBI), poly[poly(IBMA-co-MMA)-b-poly(BD)-b-poly(MMA-co-IBMA)] (I/MBM/I), and poly[poly(IBMA)-b-poly(MMA)-b-poly(BD)-b-poly(MMA)-b-poly(IBMA)] (IMBMI) block copolymers have been synthesized by sequential anionic polymerization of butadiene, MMA, and IBMA initiated by the m-diisopropenylbenzene (m-DIB)/tert-butyllithium (t-BuLi) diadduct. These block copolymers of a monomodal and narrow molecular weight distribution (M̄w/M̄n = 1.1) have been analyzed by size exclusion chromatography (SEC), NMR, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Stereocomplexation of IMBMA and I/MBM/I with iPMMA has also been studied by DSC. Although IBI triblock copolymers show a lamellar morphology even for relatively low hard block content (33 wt %), cylindrical and lamellar morphologies have been observed for the other block copolymers under consideration. These new block copolymers exhibit high ultimate tensile strength (30 MPa), elongation at break (1000%), and upper service temperature (140−200 °C). [less ▲]

Thermoplastic elastomers are one of the fastest growing material groups. They can be processed like thermoplastics but their properties are close to those of vulcanized elastomers. New products, new processing techniques, new properties, and new applications have developed since the publication of the second edition. All these developments are reflected in the new edition of this well-established standard work. A unique and comprehensive, up-to-date guide to all scientific and technical aspects of thermoplastic elastomers—indispensable for everyone working in this field. [less ▲]

The natural polyamines, named 1,4-diaminobutane, N-aminopropyl-1,4-diaminobutane and N,N'-bisaminopropyl- 1,4-diaminobutane, are also designated respectively as putrescine, spermidine and spermine. They are polycationic compounds found in all eukaryotic cells. As they are deeply involved in cell functions, e.g. cellular growth, their concentration and their equilibrium in the intracellular pool are maintained in very narrow limits by regulatory mechanisms acting in a very fast, sensitive and precise way. These compounds are involved in gut inflammatory processes and in allergy. Indeed, they control the production of inflammatory mediators in several cell lines or tissues. Polyamine metabolism could be considered as a putative target for inflammation, allergy prevention or therapy. [less ▲]

Bimetallic µ-oxalok oxides are very active anionic coordination type catalysts in the living polymerization of t-caprolactone. These compounds have a well-defined composition which can be systematically modified. It is proposed that at least half the alkoxy groups of these catalysts are replaced by carboxylate ones and the remaining alkoxy groups by any hydroxyl-terminated polymer PX. These new polymer PX-supported catalysts are powerful tools in tailoring poly(ε-capro1actone) block copolymers with well controlled molecular parameters. [less ▲]
