Carbon nanotube-based sensors

warning: Creating default object from empty value in /home/minachr5/public_html/modules/taxonomy/taxonomy.module on line 1418.
We are studying the properties of carbon nanotube (CNT) biosensors using numerical simulation. The research is focusing on the electronic transport through CNTs that are exposed to various amino acids and short peptides. Using a combination of molecular dynamics, density functional theory, and quantum transport calculations we are able to predict how the adsorption of these peptides affects the transport through the tubes.
