Nanosensors are rapidly becoming a technology of choice across diverse fields.
They offer effective and affordable options for detecting and measuring
chemical and physical properties in difficult-to-reach biological and
industrial systems operating at the nanoscale. However, with nanosensor
development occurring in so many fields, it has become difficult to stay
current with the latest research and emerging applications.
NANOSENSORS: Theory and Applications in Industry, Healthcare and Defense
answers the need for a comprehensive resource on advances in this area. Dr.
Teik-Cheng Lim, a highly regarded expert in novel materials and nanosensors
crosses disciplines to bring together 17 pioneering experts who address the
fundamental principles of nanosensors and their diverse applications. Serving
to stimulate a convergence of information across otherwise isolated
disciplines, this volume covers —
Carbon-nanotube (CNT)-based sensors and their uses with a range of analytes,
including gaseous molecules, organic charge transfer complexes, proteins, DNA,
and antibodies CNT-based fluidic sensors for studying the shear stress of blood
vessels and cells, useful in diagnosing many diseases Nanomechanical cantilever
sensors, which offer low cost, fast response, and high specificity without the
need for pre-analysis labeling Layer-by-layer (LbL) self-assembly and the
Langmuir– Blodgett (LB) technique, highly efficient approaches when working
with expensive biological compounds Fluorescence resonance energy for
intracellular glucose monitoring Noble metal nanoparticles with their unique
optical properties as colorimetric probes for biological analysis Optical
capillary sensors as an affordable tool for classifying liquid samples
Nanosensors in bioinformatics and their role in a much needed systems approach
With so much activity occurring in so many fields, further progress in the
area of nanosensors is certain. Through the convergence of findings across many
fields, as exemplified by this book, that progress can be accelerated.
