A microbial biosensor based on Gluconobacter oxydans cells immobilized on the conducting polymer of 4-(2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrol-1-yl)benzenamine (SNS-NH2) coated onto the Surface of graphite electrode was constructed. The proposed biosensor was characterized using glucose as the Substrate. The linear relation was observed in the range of 0.1-2.5 mM and defined by the equation y = 0.415x + 0.377 (R-2 = 0.986). Analytical characterization, effects of electropolymerization time, pH, cell amount and the presence of gold nanoparticles (GNP) on the polymer surface together with the biological material were examined as well. Finally, the system was used for ethanol and glucose detection in real samples.


Symmetrical and decoupled nickel microgyroscope on insulating substrate
Alper, Se; Akın, Tayfun (Elsevier BV, 2004-09-21)
This paper presents a symmetrical and decoupled surface micromachined gyroscope fabricated by electroforming thick nickel on a glass substrate. The symmetric structure allows matched resonant frequencies for the drive and sense vibration modes for improved sensitivity, while the decoupled drive and sense oscillation modes prevents unstable operation due to mechanical coupling, resulting in a low zero-rate output drift. The use of a glass substrate instead of a silicon substrate reduces noise due to the para...
A sol-gel derived AgCl photochromic coating on glass for SERS chemical sensor application
Volkan, Mürvet; Vo-Dinh, T (Elsevier BV, 2005-05-13)
A new optically translucent material has been prepared that acts as a substrate for surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. This material is a silica matrix, synthesized by the sol-gel method and containing in situ precipitated AgCl particles which serve as precursors for nanoparticles of elemental silver. Reduction of AgCl to silver nanoparticles is achieved by UV irradiation. The SERS-active medium was distributed on glass supports (cover glass slips, 0.5 turn thick), hence producing thin, sturdy, and optica...

Emre, Fatma Bilge; Ekiz, Fulya; Balan, Abidin; Emre, Sinan; TİMUR, SUNA; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2011-11-15)
Poly(4,7-di(2,3)-dihydrothienol[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl-benzo[1,2,5]thiadiazole) (PBDT) and poly(4,7-di(2,3)-dihydrothienol[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl-2,1,3-benzoselenadiazole) (PESeE) were electrochemically deposited on graphite electrodes and used as immobilization matrices for biosensing studies. After electrochemical deposition of the polymeric matrices, glucose oxidase (GOx) was immobilized on the modified electrodes as the model enzyme. In the biosensing studies, the decrease in oxygen level as a result of...
Assessment of InSb photodetectors on Si substrates
Ozer, S; Beşikci, Cengiz (IOP Publishing, 2003-03-07)
We present the detailed characteristics of small area (33 x 33 mum(2)) InSb photodiodes grown on GaAs coated Si substrates by molecular beam epitaxy. In spite of very large lattice mismatch, 80 K peak detectivity of similar to1 x 10(10) cm Hz(1/2) W-1 has been measured under backside illumination without anti-reflection coating. Differential resistance at 80 K is limited by Ohmic leakage under small reverse bias and trap assisted tunnelling (TAT) under moderately large reverse bias. In the temperature range...

Takaloo, AshkanVakilipour; Kolahdouz, Mohammadreza; POURSAFAR, Jafar; ES, FIRAT; Turan, Raşit; Ki-Joo, Seung (IOP Publishing, 2018-03-01)
Nanotextured Si fabricated through metal-assisted chemical etching (MACE) technique exhibits a promising potential for producing antireflective layer for photovoltaic (PV) application. In this study, a novel single-step nickel (Ni) assisted etching technique was applied to produce an antireflective, nonporous Si (black Si) in an aqueous solution containing hydrofluoric acid (HF), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and NiSO4 at 40 degrees C. Field emission scanning electron microscope was used to characterize differen...
