Abstract: In this paper, a novel nano aqueous flow sensor which consists of two closelyspaced amperometric sensors is investigated by digital simulation. The simulation resultsindicate that the ratio of the responses of two closely spaced amperometric sensors is onlyrelated to flow rates in the channel, insensitive to the analyte concentration in the solution.By comparing the output of two amperometric sensors, the flow rate in the channel can bededuced. It is not necessary to determine the analyte concentration in advance. Thesimulation results show it is able to detect flow rate by in the range of several nano-liters perminute when the distance between the working electrodes of two amperometric sensors is200 nm and the cross-section of the channel is 1 μm x 1 μm.
Keywords: flow sensor; amperometric sensor; channel; simulation.
