Sense the world using silicon nanosensors

Zhen Zhang

Driven by continuous device size downscaling, silicon chip technology created the foundation of our modern information society. As we are approaching the limit of miniaturization, Prof. Zhen Zhang is exploring silicon devices, beyond size scaling, directly as smart sensors to sense the world. These sensors have a wide range of potential applications, from hydrogen safety to rapid drug effect tests.
