MCW07 Impact of Porphyrin Functional Groups on InAs Gas Sensors
out of 5 stars
05 Nov 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Michael Garcia
Porphyrin molecules are often used for sensor engineering to improve sensitivity and selectivity to specific analytes. It is important to understand how the porphyrin HOMO-LUMO levels deplete surface states during functionalization of solid state sensors. Additionally, the effect of...
MCW07 Modeling Molecule-Assisted Transport in Nanotransistors
06 Nov 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Kamil Walczak
Molecular electronics faces many problems in practical device implementation, due to difficulties with fabrication and gate-ability. In these devices, molecules act as the main conducting channel. One could imagine alternate device structures where molecules act as quantum dots rather than...
MCW07 Silicon Based Nanopore Sensors for Detection of DNA Molecules
11 Sep 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Samir Iqbal, Demir Akin, Rashid Bashir
Solid-state nanopores have emerged as possible candidates for next-generation DNA sequencing devices. In this talk, we will review our recent work in development of solid-state nanopore channels that are selective towards single strand DNA (ssDNA). Nanopores functionalized with a 'probe' of...

Peanuts vs. Pyramids: Two Perspectives on MEMS
23 Nov 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen D. Senturia
MEMS, the acronym for Micro-electromechanical Systems, also known simply as “Micro-systems,” come in two main types: commodity products (the peanuts) and MEMS-enabled products (the pyramids, or, more correctly, the inverted pyramids). The economics of scale greatly affect how these two classes of...
