The analysis of individual biological nanoparticles has significantly advanced our understanding of fundamental biological processes but is also rapidly becoming relevant for molecular diagnostic applications in the emerging field of personalized medicine. Both optical and electrical methods for the detection and analysis of single biomolecules have been(More)
Scanning impedance imaging (SH) uses a noncontacting electrical probe held at a known voltage and scanned over a thin sample on a ground plane in a conductive medium to obtain images of current. The current image is related in a nonlinear way to the conductivity of the sample. This paper develops the theory behind SII showing how the measured current(More)
Optofluidic platforms used for biomolecular detection require spectral filtering for distinguishing analyte signals from unwanted background. Towards a fully integrated platform, an on-chip filter is required. Selective deposition of dielectric thin films on an optofluidic sensor based on antiresonant reflecting optical waveguide (ARROW) technology provides(More)
Scanning (electrical) impedance imaging (SII) is a novel high-resolution imaging modality that has the potential of imaging the electrical properties of thin biological tissues. In this paper, we apply the reciprocity principle to the modeling of the SII system and develop a fast nonlinear inverse method for image reconstruction. The method is fast because(More)
