ABOUT THE CALENDAR
The abilities of instabilities: Electromechanical switches, sensors and actuators
Seminar: BWRC | May 3 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 400 Cory Hall
Ankit Jain, Purdue University
In this presentation, I will address the problem of sub-threshold swing and sensitivity in the field of switching and bio-sensing respectively. I will show how a nanoelectromechanical field effect transistor (NEMFET) can achieve hysteresis-free sub-60mV/decade switching. In the field of bio-sensing, I will discuss the proposal of novel Flexure-FET (flexure sensitive FET) biosensor that shows exponentially better sensitivity towards bio-molecules capture compared to any of the existing electronic or mechanical biosensors.
