highly ordered nanowire arrays on plastic substrates for ultrasensitive flexible chemical sensors - flexible plastic sheet
High integration of a robust approach
Performance semiconductors on flexible plastics can provide an exciting path in basic research and new applications.
A critical area is chemical and biosensing, which, if implemented on biocompatible substrates, could create a breakthrough in an implantable or wearable monitoring system.
Semiconductor Nano Wire (and nanotubes)
Particularly sensitive chemical sensors because of their high surfaceto-volume ratios.
Here we propose an extensible parallel process for the transmission of hundreds of pre-

We also use silica surface chemistry to construct "nanometers"
Electronic noise Library, which can distinguish acetone from hexane steam by distributed response.
Excellent sensing performance, coupled with flexible plastic, will provide an opportunity for portable, wearable and even implant sensors.
