Nanopore Graphene-based Electronic Devices

Event Description
The Department of Physics will host “Nanopore Graphene-based Electronic Devices” with Dr. Marija Drndic, associate professor of physics at the University of Pennsylvania, December 6, 2012 at 3:30 p.m. at Disque Hall, room 919 (32nd and Chestnut Streets).

Graphene is an exceptional material for high-speed electronics, as well as a revolutionary membrane material due to its strength and atomic thickness. Nanopores in suspended graphene membranes are currently regarded as candidates for ultrafast DNA sequencing. When a single DNA molecule passes through a nanopore, it blocks the field-driven ions passing through the pore and is detected by measuring the ion current reduction. Due to the thin nature of graphene membranes and reduced pore resistance, we observe larger current signals than in the case of traditional solid-state nanopores. Use of graphene as a membrane material opens the door to a new class of nanopore devices in which electronic sensing and control are performed directly at the pore.

The lecture is free and open to the Drexel community. For more information, email Dr. Alexey Aprelev at Aprelev@drexel.edu.
