Using Nanotechnology to Develop the Next Generation of Sensors

K. Charles Janac
Nanomix, US

Keywords: sensors, nanoelectronic circuits

Abstract:
Science Magazine identified nanoelectronic circuits as the breakthrough of the year in its December 2001 issue. Pioneering research in university and private sector laboratories have demonstrated the potential for using nanotubes and nanowires in nano-electronic circuits, and as sensor devices. Carbon nanotubes, especially single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are one-dimensional conductors that have been successfully incorporated into various types of test circuits. These circuits have been shown to exquisitely sensitive as chemical and biological sensors. Nanotube-based sensors promise low power, low cost, high sensitivity and a footprint small enough to fit on revolutionary new wireless platforms. Mr. Janac will discuss the implications of nanotechnology on a billion dollar sensor market and how the industry will be transformed within the next year.
