The thesis by Merce Pacios exploits properties of carbon natubes to design vel nadevices. The prominent electrochemical properties of carbon natubes are used to design diverse electrode configurations. In combination with the chemical properties and (bio)functionalization versatility, these materials prove to be very appropriate for the development of electrochemical biosensors. Furthermore, this work also evaluates the semiconductor character of carbon natubes (CNT) for sensor techlogy by using a field effect transistor configuration (FET). The CNT-FET device has been optimized for operating in liquid environments. These electrochemical and electronic CNT devices are highly promising for biomolecule sensing and for the monitoring of biological processes, which can in the future lead to applications for rapid and simple diagstics in fields such as biotechlogy, clinical and environmental research.
