Welcome to the Rolandi Group

The protonic conductivity in chitin Supplementary Fig. Ph regulation and beyond: In hybrid bionanodevices, biological multifunctionality has been added to carbon nanotubes21 or silicon nanowires22 with transmembrane proton conductive proteins. This charge, in turn, may reduce the strength of the electric field at the contacts, thus effectively limiting the current. A higher level of water absorption creates more proton-conducting hydrogen-bond chains HBC that serve as proton wires2 for Grotthus type transfer to occur Fig.

The simulations are in good agreement with the experimental data at low Vds, while the nonlinear dependence of Ids on Vds for higher Vds is not reproduced.

Few examples of protonic-based devices exist, and bioprotojic an ice FET working with AC current12, and a water bipolar junction transistor The demonstrated ability to control protonic currents in nanostructured biocompatible solid-state devices bionanoprotonics may open exciting opportunities for interfacing with living systems.

When the bias is reversed, the charge should be released and cause hysteresis in the Ids—Vds dependence. Bioelectronic silicon nanowire devices using functional membrane proteins.

Devices were mounted on a chip, and wire bonded. RoudsariAdnan KapetanovicM. The causes for hysteresis and the non-linear behaviour of Ids for high Vds are still not fully understood and merit further investigation.

Measurements performed on a thicker device show a significantly smaller Ids modulation from Vgs, as predicted by our description Supplementary Fig. In most materials, protons have to overcome activation energy in the range of 0.

This is a unique property of having proton transparent contacts and reduces field-efvect constraints. Topics Discussed in This Paper. This represents a step towards bionanoprotonics.
