Carbon nanofiber electrode architectures are used to provide for long-term, neuroelectroanalytical measurements of the dynamic processes of intercellular communication between excitable cells. Individually addressed, vertically aligned carbon nanofibers are incorporated into multielement electrode arrays upon which excitable cell matrixes of both(More)
Rapid and selective molecular exchange across a barrier is essential for emulating the properties of biological membranes. Vertically-aligned carbon nanofibre (VACNF) forests have shown great promise as membrane mimics, owing to their mechanical stability, their ease of integration with microfabrication technologies and the ability to tailor their(More)
Electrically conductive polymers, such as polypyrrole (PPy), show promise for modifying the dimensions and properties of micro- and nanoscale structures. Mechanisms for controlling the formation of PPy films of nanoscale thickness were evaluated by electrochemically synthesizing and examining PPy films on planar gold electrodes under a variety of growth(More)
Nanoporous membranes are applicable to a variety of research fields due to their ability to selectively separate molecules with high efficiency. Of particular interest are methods for controlling membrane selectivity through externally applied stimuli and integrating such membrane structures within multiscale systems. Membranes comprised of(More)
A simulation is presented here that serves the dual functions of generating a nanoporous membrane replica and executing the Brownian motion of nanoparticles through the virtual membrane. Specifically, the concentration profile of a dilute solution of fluorescent particles in a stochastic and SiO(2)-coated carbon nanofiber (oxCNF), nanoporous membrane was(More)
Anode geometry can significantly affect the electrochemical synthesis of conductive polymers. Here, the effects of anode dimensions on the electropolymerization of pyrrole are investigated. Band microelectrodes were prepared with widths ranging from 2 to 500 mum. The anode dimension has a significant effect on the resulting thickness of polymer film. The(More)
