Rectifying memristor bridge circuit realized with human skin

three times for different frequencies (0.005 Hz, 0.05 Hz and 0.5 Hz) in randomized order. The time between runs during which no voltage was applied was 4 seconds. Instrumentation A custom-built measurement system (see Fig. 1c top) was used for the recordings. A data acquisition card (DAQ) (type USB-6356 from National instruments) enabled the application of two constant voltages and simultaneous reading (both was performed with 500 samples per period). The DAQ was connected to a personal computer and controlled by a custom-made software, which was written in NI

A fast method to estimate body capacitance to ground at mid frequencies

measurements, either bipolar with direct contact [ 13 ] or capacitive electrodes [ 16 ], or tetrapolar [ 10 ] warrant the interest of its measurement. Measurement method In a scenario where bipolar impedances are measured on the human body, we propose to estimate the capacitance from the body to ground by connecting a known capacitor between each electrode and the impedance analyzer. Figure 2 shows the resulting equivalent circuit. If the capacitance of the added capacitors C is small enough for its impedance to be much larger than that of the body and the

Relating membrane potential to impedance spectroscopy

, the permittivity spectra present a clear dependency of α dispersion on the membrane potential. However, for cells with radius ~2 μm, the spectra of impedance magnitude relative to the value at 1 kHz (impedance level prior to β dispersion) reveal ( fig. 1B) very small decrements related to α dispersion, ΔZr ≤ 5×10 -3 % raising tough experimental constraints. The same challenge is related to phase variations in the α dispersion ( fig 1C) where changes Δθ ≤ 2×10 -3 degrees are emphasized. When considering suspensions of larger cells ( R 1 ~ 0.5 mm), impedance

Investigating the quasi-oscillatory behavior of electrical parameters with the concentration of D-glucose in aqueous solution

different sets of volume fractions of glucose in DI water. Results and Discussion Fig. 3 (a) – (c) depicts the plots of variation of impedance, capacitance and conductance with volume fraction of glucose in the DI water-glucose solution for the frequencies 1 kHz, 10 kHz and 100 kHz. The experiment has been performed within the volume fraction range of 0.1 to 0.5. It is apparent from all such plots that the variation of electrical parameters of interest exhibits a quasi-oscillatory behavior with the volume fraction of glucose in the solution, instead of showing a

We further employ scaling arguments [ 10 ] to reduce the living epidermis and electrodes to boundary conditions, as illustrated in Fig. 1c , which yields a
