Special Issue Information
Nanomaterials and nanostructure-based devices are highly promising in the development of next-generation biosensors with superior performance. Nanomaterials, including one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials (e.g., 1D Si nanowires (Si NWs) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs), 2D graphene, MoS2, and MXenes) have been employed as sensing components, due to their ultrahigh surface-to-volume ratios. Nanostructure-based devices, on the other hand, can provide similar surface-to-volume ratios as nanomaterial-based devices by nano- and micro-fabrication processes, such as nanolithography. Unique physical and chemical properties have been demonstrated from nanomaterials and nanostructure-based device systems. In view of this rapidly growing field, it is our pleasure to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue focused on the recent advances, future perspectives, and challenges for the development of biosensors using nanomaterials and nanostructures.
The present Special Issue is devoted to all aspects of biosensors utilizing nanomaterials and nanostructures, including, but not limited to, the novel synthesis routes of nanomaterials for biosensing, the fabrication approaches for nanostructures for biosensing, and the applications of nano-biosensors. For example, SiNWs, CNTs, and graphene-based field-effect transistor biosensors have been developed as chemical, gas, and biological sensors. A variety of sensing mechanisms can be applied, including electrochemical, optical, and fluorescent sensing. A broad range of applications are of interest to this Special Issue, including point-of-care, flexible, implantable, and wearable devices.
This Special Issue, devoted to nanomaterials and nanostructures for biosensing, aims to focus on the most recent advances in the development of a variety of material, device, and application systems for biosensing, and will be composed of research articles, communications, reviews, and perspective studies. We look forward to your submission.
