Nano-Chemical Sensors; Practical Designs

Abstract:
There is often a large gap between laboratory science and practical products. It will take some years to fathom the overall technical importance of nano-technology and even longer to realize societal benefits through practical products. However, Nanomix has identified a specific nanotechnology, using carbon nanotubes, that can make immediate impacts and that can produce sensor products useful to existing industries. The unique quantum electronic characteristics of carbon nanotubes can be harnessed to provide a platform for the design, fabrication, and commercialization of nano-chemical sensors. The early accomplishments of Nanomix have prepared a foundation for the design and fabrication of sensors. Further, these sensors have been integrated into a CMOS process technology making them one of the earliest examples of a practical nanodevice, i.e. a device that incorporates a nano-element, the single-wall nanotube (SWNT). The road to these practical chemical sensors has required significant innovation.
