Nano EDL Capacitor Based Biosensors

Market Overview:

This technology features the development and application of a nanoscale electrical double layer (EDL) capacitor based biosensor. It takes advantage of the fact that the capacitance of an EDL device varies very sensitively with the charge and dielectric conditions of the nearby space spanning from the electrode surface to a few nanometers out to devise EDL capacitive sensors to discriminate any variation or change in the charge and dielectric conditions in that space.
