Nanosensors' niche in nanotechnology

Abstract:
At some point in the future, nanosensors, generally defined as "devices" capable of sensing and responding to physical stimuli with dimensions on the order of one billionth of a meter, will revolutionize the detection of biological and chemical substances, displacement and motion, force and mass, and acoustic, thermal and electromagnetic stimuli. This report will highlight the recent work in nanosensor development, which has been notable in the areas of nanomaterials, nanoparticles and nanodevices (particularly nanotubes) for biotechnological, chemical and gas applications.
