"Nanoscale Transport in Chemical
Significant recent advances in analytical chemistry and molecular
biology have led to an entire new class of chemical sensors based on
transport in nanopores. These sensors show remarkable sensitivity
(single molecule) and specificity, and are projected as portable
biomolecule sensors in fighting terrorism and in ultra-trace analyses.
In this lecture, I will present an overview of our recent
investigations of two nanopore-based methodologies: (1) the stochastic
detection of nanoparticles by electrophoretic capture and release at
the mouth of a membrane pore, and (2) the glass nanopore electrode.
