Delhi, New Delhi, India, 2006/09/26 - Nanotechnology market is growing rapidly and carbon nanotubes based sensors, developed by a team of US based scientists, make the latest entrant to it..
A team of scientists from Motorola Labs and Arizona State University is said to have developed carbon nanotubes based sensors. According to the team, the new devices successfully detected heavy metal ions' presence in water caused by parts per trillion levels.
Specifically, researchers said that they had developed a method to apply peptides to single walled nanotubes of carbon in field effect transistors. This is a rather common sensor platform for all types of applications. Heavy metal ions is checked in water, however, the platform may be applied to various other areas for sensing toxic chemicals propagating in the air, or can be used in medicine as biosensors.
