Biosensors and CNTs
A brief comment on a brief news appeared in the SPIE newsroom: Joe Shapter and Jamie Quinton, from the Finders University, Australia, explain how to ease the integration of biosensors into silicon, thanks to the use of carbon nanotubes. It's ok, but we still do not have any compact model for a carbon nanotube, so simulation of this kind of sensors is not feasible in a conventional simulator. It's a pity.
