Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The advances in the creation of nanoscale materials and devices over the past two decades have been truly wondrous. The scientific community now has a vast array of synthetic and analytical tools to make new nanomaterials and integrate them into useful, functional devices. This special issue of the journal focuses on the exciting convergence of nanomaterials and biosensors. The issue seeks to clarify the unique enhancements that are possible through the use of nanoscale features in biosensing.  Nanoscale control of size and surface functionalization can enhance surface area, local diffusion, field effects, and plasmonics, among other processes. Further, numerous practical aspects of nano-biosensors are of increasing importance--can they improve specificity? are they more or less susceptible to fouling? can they be functionalized, integrated and scaled up efficiently and economically? This special collection of contributions seeks to answer some of these questions, while in the rich tradition of scientific research raising others that will lead the field forward.
