This study was conducted to investigate the biodegradation ability of the mixed culture of Trichoderma viride and Aspergillus niger through the study of the organic matter extracted from rice straw and the lignocellulose structure by using gas chromatography-mass spectrometer (GC-MS) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The results of the(More)
A biocompatible and stable surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) probe has been successfully synthesized through a simple route with silver aggregates. Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), a biocompatible polymer, was utilized to control the aggregation process and improve the chemical stability of the aggregates. Extinction spectroscopy and TEM results show the(More)
We report the fabrication of ionic liquid (IL)-gated field-effect transistors (FETs) consisting of bilayer and few-layer MoS2. Our transport measurements indicate that the electron mobility μ ≈ 60 cm(2) V(-1) s(-1) at 250 K in IL-gated devices exceeds significantly that of comparable back-gated devices. IL-FETs display a mobility increase from ≈ 100 cm(2)(More)
We report the fabrication of both n-type and p-type WSe2 field-effect transistors with hexagonal boron nitride passivated channels and ionic-liquid (IL)-gated graphene contacts. Our transport measurements reveal intrinsic channel properties including a metal-insulator transition at a characteristic conductivity close to the quantum conductance e(2)/h, a(More)
We report electrical characterization of monolayer molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) devices using a thin layer of polymer electrolyte (PE) consisting of poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) and lithium perchlorate (LiClO4) as both a contact-barrier reducer and channel mobility booster. We find that bare MoS2 devices (without PE) fabricated on Si/SiO2 have low channel(More)
We report electrowetting on dielectric (EWOD) experiments using graphene; a transparent, flexible and stretchable nanomaterial. Graphene sheets were synthesized by chemical vapor deposition, and transferred to various substrates (including glass slides and PET films). Reversible contact angle changes were observed on the Teflon-coated graphene electrode(More)
A highly sensitive immunoassay based on surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) has been developed with a novel immune marker named as Raman reporter-labeled immuno-Au aggregates on a SERS-active immune substrate. The features of those immune aggregates were characterized by UV-vis extinction spectra, TEM images, SEM pictures and SERS spectra. It is found(More)
A tumor cell targeting surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) probe has been successfully synthesized by using p-mercaptobenzoic acid (pMBA) as both the SERS reporter and the conjugation agent for attaching transferrin molecules, which shows experimentally the targeting ability for transferrin receptor-overexpressed HeLa cells and exhibits strong SERS(More)
We report the pH response enhancement of the electrolyte-gated graphene field effect transistors by controllably introducing edge defects. An average improvement of pH response from 4.2 to 24.6 mV/pH has been observed after downscaling the pristine graphene into graphene nanoribbon arrays with electron beam lithography (EBL) and oxygen plasma. We attribute(More)
A highly sensitive surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrate with particle-film sandwich geometry has been developed for the label free detection of folic acid (FA) and methotrexate (MTX). In this sandwich structure, the bottom layer is composed of a copper foil decorated with silver nanoparticles synthesized by the galvanic displacement reaction,(More)
