Nanotechnology-Enabled Sensing Workshop Report (2009)

Subject Area:
NNI Workshop Reports
Author: National Nanotechnology Initiative
Publication Date: May. 7 2009

Description:

Nanotechnology holds the potential to enable a new generation of high-density, multianalyte sensors to fill the rising demand for highly selective, highly sensitive smart sensor systems capable of simultaneously detecting multiple species.  Organizers of this NNI workshop chose to focus on nanotechnology-enabled signal transducers and the insertion of these sensing elements into sensor systems.


Nanotechnology Fact

The term "nanomaterial" refers to nanoscale materials, or materials that contain nanoscale structures internally or on their surfaces. These can include engineered (or man-made) nanometer-scale objects such as nanoparticles, nanotubes, and nanofilms, as well as naturally occurring nanoparticles such as volcanic ash, sea spray, and smoke.
