Summary : Nanotechnology ("nanotech") is the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. The earliest, widespread description of nanotechnology referred to the particular technological goal of precisely manipulating atoms and molecules for fabrication of macroscale products, also now referred to as molecular nanotechnology. A more generalized description of nanotechnology was subsequently established by the National Nanotechnology Initiative, which defines nanotechnology as the manipulation of matter with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometers. This definition reflects the fact that quantum mechanical effects are important at this quantum-realm scale, and so the definition shifted from a particular technological goal to a research category inclusive of all types of research and technologies that deal with the special properties of matter that occur below the given size threshold. It is therefore common to see the plural form "nanotechnologies" as well as "nanoscale technologies" to refer to the broad range of research and applications whose common trait is size. Because of the variety of potential applications (including industrial and military), governments have invested billions of dollars in nanotechnology research. Through its National Nanotechnology Initiative, the USA has invested 3.7 billion dollars. The European Union has invested[when?] 1.2 billion and Japan 750 million dollars.

Summary : Molecular electrostatic potentials (MEPs) and vibrational electronics ("vibronics") have developed into novel scenarios proposed by our group to process information at the molecular level. They along with the traditional current-voltage scenario can be used to design and develop molecular devices for the next generation electronics. Control and communication features of these scenarios strongly help in the production of "smart" devices able to take decisions and act autonomously in aggressive environments. In sensor science, the ultimate detector of an agent molecule is another molecule that can respond quickly and selectively among several agents. The purpose of this project is the design and development of molecular sensors based on the MEPs and vibronics scenarios to feature two different and distinguishable states of conductance, including a nano-micro interface to address and interconnect the output from the molecular world to standard micro-technologies. In this dissertation, theoretical calculations of the electrical properties such as the electron transport on molecular junctions are performed for the components of the sensor system. Proofs of concept experiments complement our analysis, which includes an electrical characterization of the devices and measurement of conductance states that may be useful for the sensing mechanism. In order to focus this work within the very broad array between nanoelectronic and molecular electronics, we define the new field of Molecular Engineering, which will have the mission to design molecular and atomistic devices and set them into useful systems. Our molecular engineering approach begins with a search for an optimum fit material to achieve the proposed goals; our published results suggest graphene as the best material to read signals from molecules, amplify the communication between molecular scenarios, and develop sensors of molecular agents with high sensitivity and selectivity. Specifically, this is possible in the case of sensors, thanks to the graphene atomic cross section (morphology), plasmonic surface (delocalized charge) and exceptional mechanical and electrical properties. Deliverables from this work are molecular devices and amplifiers able to read information encoded and processed at the molecular level and to amplify those signals to levels compatible with standard microelectronics. This design of molecular devices is a primordial step in the development of devices at the nanometer scale, which promises the next generation of sensors of chemical and biological agents molecularly sensitive, selective and intelligent.

Summary : Accurate virus detection is important for diagnosis in a timely manner to facilitate rapid interventions and treatments. RNA viruses affect an extensive amount of the worlds population, particularly in tropical countries where emerging infectious agents often arise. Current diagnostic methods have three main problems: they are time consuming, typically not field-portable, and expensive. My research goal is to develop rapid, field-portable and cost sensitive diagnostic methods for RNA viruses. Herein, two different approaches to detect RNA viruses were proposed: Conjugated gold nanoparticles for detection of viral particles or virus-specific antibodies by monitoring changes in their optical properties, and Tentacle Probes coupled with qPCR for detection and differentiation of closely-related viral strains. The first approach was divided into two projects: the study and characterization of the gold nanoparticle-antibody system for detection of virus particles using dynamic light scattering (DLS) and UV-Vis spectrophotometry, and development of a detection method for antibodies using static light scattering (SLS) and antigen-conjugated gold nanoparticles. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) conjugated gold nanoparticles could successfully detect BSA-specific antibodies in vitro, and protein E from Dengue Virus serotype 2 conjugated gold nanoparticles could detect Dengue-specific antibodies, both in vitro and in serum samples. This method is more accurate than currently used detection methods such as dot blots. The second approach uses Tentacle Probes, which are modified molecular beacons, to detect with high specificity two different strains of Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis Virus (LCMV), Armstrong and Clone-13, which differ in only one nucleotide at the target sequence. We successfully designed and use Tentacle Probes for detection of both strains of LCMV, in vitro and in serum from infected mice. Moreover, detection of as little as 10% of Clone-13 strain was possible when diluted in 90% Armstrong strain. This approach enables the detection of different strains of virus even within a mixed quasispecies and may be important for improving intervention strategies for reducing disease. The detection methods provide rapid detection of viruses, including viral strains within mixed populations, and should enhance our ability in providing early responses to emerging infectious diseases due to RNA viruses including Zika or Dengue virus.

Summary : This report describes technical progress toward a highly sensitive and selective molecular electronic sensor system. The effort uses state-of-the-art approaches for analyte detection and sensor design. The sensor system consists of a functionalized semiconductor nanowire matrix with a combination of different receptors (that range from highly specific nucleic acid reporters to broadband simple chemical reporters). A gating scheme provides a unique advantage that selectively tunes portions of the array to specific reactions, which enhances sensitivity and selectivity. This approach challenges the limits of detectability; a semiconductor nanowire FET which could scale to single molecule detection (and high density); and ultra sensitive nucleotide switches with unique selectivity and sensitivity.
