Prerequisites

ENGS 22, CHEM 6, or equivalent

Introduction to fundamentals and major types of molecular sensor systems, scaling laws of device miniaturization, and detection mechanisms, including molecular capture mechanisms; electrical, optical, and mechanical transducers; micro-array analysis of biomolecules; semiconductor and metal nanosensors; microfluidic systems; and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS, BioMEMS) design, fabrication and applications for bioengineering. 

Three lab sessions are designed to gain hands-on experience on microfluidic chip and soft lithography, gold nanorods-based biomolecular sensors, micro-reactors using colloidal chemistry in engineering of nanoparticles for biomedical applications in sensing and imaging.
