Early Access ArticlesEarly Access articles are new content made available in advance of the final electronic or print versions and result from IEEE's Preprint or Rapid Post processes. Preprint articles are peer-reviewed but not fully edited. Rapid Post articles are peer-reviewed and edited but not paginated. Both these types of Early Access articles are fully citable from the moment they appear in IEEE Xplore.
Silicon-Based Biologically-Sensitive field-effect transistors (BioFETs) with Three-Dimensional NanostructurePublication Year: 2016, Page(s): 1
Biosensors enable the quantitative detection of target biomolecules in a sample. A biosensor is composed of two parts: the receptor and the transducer. The detection mechanism of biosensors is typically based on a lockand-key approach, also known as the affinity-based approach. A receptor, such as deoxyribonucleic acid or an antibody, captures the target molecules by selectively binding with them ... View full abstract»
In recent decades, terahertz (TH z) technology has seen rapid development and significant application in the biological sensing field. In this process, nanotechnology has been constantly creating possibilities for THz technology advancement. Here, we discuss common THz biosensing techniques and limitations and focus on how state-of-the-art nanotechnology helps to improve THz biological imaging cap... View full abstract»
Since their discovery, carbon nanotubes have been used in everything from lightweight composites to electrical components in sensors and electronics. The development of substrate-grown vertically aligned carbon nanotubes by plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition spurred on exciting new applications in electronics, field emission, and sensors. These materials were later called carbon nanofibers ... View full abstract»
The diamond (D) is one of the most precious materials in the world with unmatched physical and chemical properties, such as hardness, extreme chemical stability, high thermal conductivity, the highest acoustic velocity of any material, an extremely low friction coefficient when smooth, and nearly unmatched biocompatibility. The carbon (C) atoms in Ds are tetrahedrally coordinated. This bonding is ... View full abstract»
Aims & Scope
The scope of IEEE Nanotechnology Magazine is all aspects of nanotechnology including theory, analysis, design, implementation, and applications related to creation of materials, devices, structures, etc. by manipulating matter at the nanometer length scale and taking advantage of novel (physical, chemical, electrical, mechanical, optical, magnetic, biological) properties which arise solely due to the nanometer scale. Contents are written at a general level aimed at a broad audience. The magazine publishes articles covering new research and developments toward a broad audience, tutorials, and surveys in the field of nanotechnology in addition to industry news, research news, education news, policy news, opinion pieces, book reviews, updates on people, introduction to new tools and techniques, funding and meetings news, patent summary, and commercialization.
