Remainder of transfer from Denver University; Several batches of thermal-piezoresistive resonators were designed, fabricated and characterized. Activities will continue to focus on electro-thermal frequency trimming via heat induced thermal oxidation of resonator surfaces; miniaturization of the devices into the nonoscale; stability characterization and jitter measurement of self-oscillating thermal-piezoresistive resonators; design nad fabrication improvement for input-output isolation of thermal-piezoresistive resonators; utilizing internal electromechanical mixing for zero DC bias operation of the resonators.
