A feasibility study of glucose oxidase (GOx) immobilized tin oxide thin films, consisting of nano-baskets, for glucose sensing is presented. The nano-baskets of SnO(2) were grown on in-house fabricated anodized aluminum oxide pores of approximately 80-nm diameter using plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) at an RF power of 60W. Hydrated stannic(More)
We report the application of nano crystalline tin oxide quantum dots (SnO2-QDs) for electrochemical detection of Vibrio cholerae based on DNA hybridization technique. SnO2-QDs (- 1-5 nm) have been synthesized by laser ablation technique in liquid (LAL) and electrophoretically deposited onto hydrolyzed surface of indium tin oxide (ITO) coated glass(More)
A novel organic-inorganic platform comprising of chitosan (CH) modified nanostructured magnesium oxide (nanoMgO) has been electrophoretically deposited on the indium-tin-oxide (ITO) substrate. The single stranded probe DNA (ssDNA) sequence of Vibrio cholerae has been covalently functionalized onto CH-nanoMgO/ITO surface. The cytotoxicity assay of nanoMgO(More)
Nano-Tin oxide was synthesized using hydrothermal method at 150 °C for 6 h and then thin films were deposited by electrophoretic method at an optimized voltage of 100 V for 5 min on electropolished aluminum substrate. Spherical particles of about 30-50 nm diameters are observed with partial agglomeration when observed under electron microscope, which are(More)
Nanostructured magnesium oxide (size<10nm) grafted carboxyl (COOH) functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes (nMgO-cMWCNTs) deposited electrophoretically onto indium tin oxide (ITO) coated glass electrode and have been utilized for Vibrio cholerae detection. Aminated 23 bases single stranded DNA (NH2-ssDNA) probe sequence (O1 gene) of V. cholerae has(More)
Tin oxide is a well known nonstoichiometric material with dual valency. The invariance of stoichiometry is very intriguing. As of today no report is available for preparing perfect stoichiometric tin oxide. Here we report a novel method to prepare stoichiometric tin oxide by modifying the known plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition technique using(More)
Nanosized niobium oxide powders were synthesized with a yield of approximately 87% using a simple and facile soft-chemical process. Niobium pentachloride (Nb2Cl5) was used as the precursor which was first converted into niobium ethoxide and then hydrolysed with water to synthesize niobia nanopowder. The synthesized powder was calcined at 500 degrees C for(More)
We load a Bose-Einstein condensate into a one-dimensional (1D) optical lattice altered through the use of radio-frequency (rf) dressing. The rf resonantly couples the three levels of the 87Rb F = 1 manifold and combines with a spin-dependent “bare” optical lattice to result in adiabatic potentials of variable shape, depth, and spatial frequency content. We(More)
The photoconducting properties of a unit microflower of zinc oxide are investigated as a function of wavelength from UV to IR region at constant illumination intensity. Synthesized flowers were trapped in 2 microm gap, between pre-prepared gold microelectrodes, using AC dielectrophoresis. Photocurrent drastically increases upon illumination in the UV(More)
Nanomaterial-based photoluminescence (PL) diagnostic devices offer fast and highly sensitive detection of pesticides, DNA, and toxic agents. Here we report a label-free PL genosensor for sensitive detection of Vibrio cholerae that is based on a DNA hybridization strategy utilizing nanostructured magnesium oxide (nMgO; size >30 nm) particles. The morphology(More)
