Bio-Sensor That Uses Semiconductor Diode Structure

Dr. Sawamura of the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) presented a bio-sensor that uses a semiconductor diode structure at the nano tech 2009 show. This bio-sensor uses a metal-insulator-semiconductor diode formed on a silicon substrate, and NIMS is targeting applications of the bio-sensor for research and detection of infectious diseases and such. NIMS is already advancing with the development of technology to mass produce the bio-sensor and is targeting practical applications within two and a half to three years.
