Carbon Nanotubes as Platforms for Biosensors with by Mercè Pacios Pujadó

By Mercè Pacios Pujadó

The thesis via Mercè Pacios exploits houses of carbon nanotubes to layout novel nanodevices. The sought after electrochemical homes of carbon nanotubes are used to layout varied electrode configurations. together with the chemical houses and (bio)functionalization versatility, those fabrics end up to be very applicable for the improvement of electrochemical biosensors. additionally, this paintings additionally evaluates the semiconductor personality of carbon nanotubes (CNT) for sensor expertise by utilizing a box influence transistor configuration (FET). The CNT-FET gadget has been optimized for working in liquid environments. those electrochemical and digital CNT units are hugely promising for biomolecule sensing and for the tracking of organic procedures, that can sooner or later result in functions for swift and straightforward diagnostics in fields corresponding to biotechnology, medical and environmental research.
