Sandia's Biosensors and Nanomaterials Department conducts research and development at the interface between biology, synthetic chemistry, and surface science to deliver prototype solutions in applications ranging from biodetection to photovoltaics. Sensor development includes discrete sensors and sensor arrays based on piezoelectric, fiber-optic, micro-optic, electrochemical, biochemical, and microimpedance devices. Microfluidic sample preparation prior to detection is a growing interest. Synthetic chemistry efforts include nanoparticle growth, surface functionalization, and molecular electronics. This work addresses needs for novel materials in addition to supporting the biosensor development effort.
