Nanotechnology-Enabled Biosensors

This lecture intends to provide an overview of the state of the art in biosensing, especially the interface design between the physical transducer and the biological recognition elements. It will focus on nanotechnology-enabled biosensors, their fundamentals, and architectural design. Biosensors are advanced tools that have many uses in industrial process control, military, environmental monitoring, healthcare, microbiology, and food quality control. By integrating nanotechnology with biosensors, novel sensing mechanisms, and biosensors were developed to enhance their performance and sensing ability. Nanomaterials like nanoparticles, nanowires, carbon nanotubes, nanorods, and quantum dots were used to manufacture nano-biosensors. Nanomaterials have several benefits, including color tunability, high detection sensitivity, large surface area, high carrier capacity, high stability, and high thermal and electrical conductivity.
