Nanostructures for chemical and biological sensors
Objective: development of nanotransducers for "label-free" electrical or optical detection of organic molecules.
The field of portable and low cost chemical and biological sensors is expanding. The applications are numerous: personalized medicine of tomorrow with point of care biomarker diagnosis, continuous monitoring of the environment with the quality of air, water and biological media, agrifood .. Our challenge is to manufacture transducing nanostructures while optimizing their characteristics: geometry, sensitivity, specificity, stability, reliability and robustness.
Studies are carried out along three research axes:
FETs based on semiconductor nanonets for electrical detection of biomolecules: DNA, acetone
