Integrated self-adjusting nano-electronic sensors

Objective

We propose to develop a new integrated self-adjusting nanoelectronic sensor (SANES) based on functionalized carbon nanotubes as active elements. The multifunctional sensor micromodule will consist of a matrix of differently functionalized CNTs which are integrated into an electronics package (electronics and software also developed in the framework of the project) capable of:
- recording and analyzing the signal of a very small number (target: only one single nanotube) of sensing elements
- monitoring several factors (e.g. temperature, pressure, gas atmosphere etc.) simultaneously
- actively change the local chemical environment of the sensor component CNTs (self-adjusting behavior)

The primary objective of this proposal is to design, construct and analyse such novel sensor modules integrated in an intelligent micromodule. We intend to build the working prototype of the modul and perform its complete evaluation regarding sensitivity, selectivity, stability and reproducibility. We will conclude the project by performing a feasibility study on the possibilities of the production scale-up for the developed sensor module.
