A bioelectronic nose for the real-time assessment of water quality was constructed with human olfactory receptor (hOR) and single-walled carbon nanotube field-effect transistor (swCNT-FET). Geosmin (GSM) and 2-methylisoborneol (MIB), mainly produced by bacteria, are representative odor compounds and also indicators of contamination in the water supply(More)
Aquaporin-4 (AQP4) water channel protein transports water molecules across cell membranes bidirectionally and involves in a neurological disorder, neuromyelitis optica (NMO) caused by anti-AQP4 antibodies. Here, we developed a platform based on nanovesicle-carbon nanotube hybrid nanostructures for the real-time detection of anti-AQP4 antibodies and the(More)
We report a technique for the detection of aerosolized viruses. Conventional field-effect-transistor (FET)-based techniques use solution-based processes, thus require antibody binding to the detection region of the FET prior to the supply of the analyte. With the method described here, virus-antibody-bound particles are delivered to the FET during(More)
We report a facile and efficient method for the fabrication of highly-flexible field emission devices by forming tubular hybrid structures based on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and nickel nanotubes (Ni NTs) on graphene-based flexible substrates. By employing an infiltration process in anodic alumina oxide (AAO) templates followed by Ni electrodeposition, we(More)
We developed a magnetically-refreshable receptor platform structure which can be integrated with quite versatile nano-biosensor structures to build reusable nano-biosensor chips. This structure allows one to easily remove used receptor molecules from a biosensor surface and reuse the biosensor for repeated sensing operations. Using this structure, we(More)
Organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite solar cells have emerged as promising candidates for next-generation solar cells. To attain high photovoltaic efficiency, reducing the defects in perovskites is crucial along with a uniform coating of the films. Also, evaluating the quality of synthesized perovskites via facile and adequate methods is important as well.(More)
We demonstrated the quantitative electrophysiological monitoring of histamine and anti-histamine drug effects on live cells via reusable sensor platforms based on carbon nanotube transistors. This method enabled us to monitor the real-time electrophysiological responses of a single HeLa cell to histamine with different concentrations. The measured(More)
The localized noise-sources and those induced by external-stimuli were directly mapped by using a conducting-AFM integrated with a custom-designed noise measurement set-up. In this method, current and noise images of a poly(9,9-dioctylfluorene)-polymer-film on a conducting-substrate were recorded simultaneously, enabling the mapping of the resistivity and(More)
An electrical noise is one of the key parameters determining the performance of modern electronic devices. However, it has been extremely difficult, if not impossible, to image localized noise sources or their activities in such devices. We report a "noise spectral imaging" strategy to map the activities of localized noise sources in graphene domains. Using(More)
We report a noise mapping strategy for the reliable identification and analysis of noise sources in molecular wire junctions. Here, different molecular wires were patterned on a gold substrate, and the current-noise map on the pattern was measured and analyzed, enabling the quantitative study of noise sources in the patterned molecular wires. The frequency(More)
