    In this paper we report on gas density measurements using a micro Coriolis sensor. The technology to fabricate the sensor is based on surface channel technology.
    The measurement tube is freely suspended and has a wall thickness of only 1 micron. This renders the sensor extremely sensitive to changes in medium mass and therefore density.
    The average stability of the density measurement is 0.01 kg/m3. Temperature dependency is 0.02 kg/m3/°C. Pressure dependency is approximately 2 kg/m3/bar. Accuracy of several common gases is on average better than 0.2 kg/m3.
