A Nanocomposite Scaffold Consisting of Functionalized Gold Nanoparticles and Nanofibrous Membranes for Fabrication of Flexible Sensors
This new technology features a new nanocomposite type of scaffolds consisting of functionalized gold nanoparticles and nanofibrous membranes. This type of nanocomposite is demonstrated to function as sensitive materials on a flexible platform for sensor and biosensor applications. The flexible and printable characteristics of nanocomposite scaffolds also feature device flexibility and wearability, and low-cost manufacturing capability.
In comparison with existing sensor or biosensor thin film technologies, the new nanocomposite scaffold enable tunable sensitivity and selectivity, controllable permeation of water, device flexibility and wearability, and low-cost manufacturing capability.
