A tool to simulate Ion Sensitive Field Effect Transistors in two dimensions
Hydrogel based Biochemical Sensors
01 Jul 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Piyush Dak, Muhammad A. Alam
This is MATLAB code for a Hydrogel based biochemical sensor: The sensor is composed of a hydrogel sandwiched between a rigid porous membrane and a deformable membrane. The hydrogel is pendent with the ionizable groups (with density, Nf and acid dissociation constant, Ka) which are...

[Illinois] How to Break the "Fundamental" Limits of Nanobiosensing
04 Apr 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
As the future of Moore’s law of transistor scaling appears uncertain, electronics is being reinvented by broadening the focus to other areas including macroelectronics (electronics of large, possibly flexible and transparent displays), bioelectronics (e.g., nanobio sensors for genomics,...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Impedance Based Sensors II
22 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we start off with a light review of the nanopore sequencing method which is based upon having a carefully bioengineered pore that can induce different changes in charge blockages as different base pairs go through...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Lumerical Optical Simulation
In this lecture, we looked at lumerical optical simulation. The motivation to pursue this topic is because there is now software available that allows us to conduct simulations to visualize Electromagnetic field locations, to...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Fluorescence I
In this lecture, we discussed Fluorescence molecules and how they can be used for detection of other molecules. The molecules are considered to have high energy states, which helps them with their detection. The photons discussed...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Fluorescence II
In this lecture, we start with a revision of the common organic dyes and the photostability and quenching concepts. Quenching is then discussed in more detail and the difference between self-quenching and external quenching....
[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors II
In this lecture, there is a review of the previous lecture of SPR Sensors along with Reflection Interference Spectroscopy. We learned that as we go to longer wavelengths, the refractive index is more constant. Then, we looked at...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors III
In this lecture, we finished our discussion over optical sensors. We started with discussing a photon moving between 2 mirrors with 100% efficiency, the photon gets to "sample" the media between the mirrors with no loss. This was...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Impedance Based Sensors I
In this lecture, we were introduced to the concept of a new sensor called the impedance-based Biosensor. Biomolecules are originally charged and therefore there is a need to determine the charge of the molecule before using it on...
[Illinois] ECE 416 SPR Sensors I
21 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
This lecture was an introduction to Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) Sensors. It started out with an explanation of Coulomb's Law for the force between two charges. This lead to the concept of the electric field and with an applied...
