Ion Conductive Devices In Biosensing and Microfluidic Applications

Date: Thursday, Nov 13th
Presenter: Dr. Larry Cheng, OSU EECS


Ions in ion conductive materials behave in a similar way to electrons in semiconducting materials. This resemblance inspired us to develop ion conductive devices to manipulate ions and molecules with electrica control and detect biomolecules via ionic signals. Several applications based on this technology will be presented including, biosensing, microfluidic pH tuning, molecular preconcentration and separation.
