-|{{:​small_proteins_on_CNT.jpg|}}|Proteins tumbling in solution and binding to a nanotube. Binding events like these can modify the nanotube'​s resistance, allowing the device to be used as an electronic biosensor. We study the way these sensors operate and what they can accomplish. Hopefully, ​one day we'll find these inexpensive sensors-of-the-future ​in every doctor'​s office.

 | {{:​suspended.png|}}|A suspended carbon nanotube bridging the gap between a pair of electrodes. The CNT diameter is about 2 nm, it is hanging about 1 micron above the oxide surface. We submerge these devices in liquid environments and introduce biological molecules such as single-stranded dna. Our experiments test the physical mechanisms involved in electronic biosensing, and push the limits of detection speed and sensitivity. Image by Tal Sharf.
