The use of self-assembled monolayers (SAM) on semiconductors creates a basis for the design and creation of bioelectronics, such as biosensors. The interface between the surface and an organic monolayer can change significant electrical and physiochemical properties of a biological device. Therefore, this research examined the orientation and packing of peptide and alkylthiol monolayers on the bulk III-V semiconductor, Gallium Arsenide (GaAs).
