Humidity sensor using a single molecular transistor

 Nanoelectronic devices have attracted significant interest for their potential as chemical/gas sensors. In this work, the performance and operation of a novel single molecular transistor based humidity sensor are demonstrated for the first time using density function theory based Ab-initio calculations. The device has a novel design, which can allow real-time detection through the charge stability diagram. It is found that this method can allow large temperature range of operation with extremely high detection sensitivity than the presently available sensors, while the simplistic design can be useful for practical experimental realisation.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
