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.

Advantages:

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.
