Title: Sensor for low force-noise detection in liquids

Abstract

The embodiments described herein provide a sensor. In an exemplary embodiment, the sensor includes (1) a resonator, (2) a probe attached to the resonator, and (3) an encasement that encases the resonator, where the encasement includes an opening through which the probe can protrude and where the dimensions of the encasement are on the same order as the dimensions of the resonator.
