About this book


This volume summarizes the state-of-the-art technologies, key advances and future trends in the field of label-free biosensing. It provides detailed insights into the different types of solid-state, label-free biosensors, their underlying transducer principles, advanced materials utilized, device-fabrication techniques and various applications. The book offers graduate students, academic researchers, and industry professionals a comprehensive source of information on all facets of label-free biosensing and the future trends in this flourishing field.

Highlights of the subjects covered include label-free biosensing with:

·       semiconductor field-effect devices such as nanomaterial-modified capacitive electrolyte-insulator-semiconductor structures, silicon nanowire transistors, III-nitride semiconductor devices and light-addressable potentiometric sensors

·       impedimetric biosensors using planar and 3D electrodes

·       nanocavity and solid-state nanopore devices

·       carbon nanotube and graphene/graphene oxide biosensors

·       electrochemical biosensors using molecularly imprinted polymers

·       biomimetic sensors based on acoustic signal transduction

·       enzyme logic systems and digital biosensors based on the biocomputing concept

·       heat-transfer as a novel transducer principle

·       ultrasensitive surface plasmon resonance biosensors

·       magnetic biosensors and magnetic imaging devices
