Nanoscopic Conductive Link: a Sensor, Actuator, or Light Emitter?

    Description

    Looking forward to future development of the equipment intended for characterization and chemical actuation (by heat or light) of microscopic and further nanoscopic quantities of matter, there is a great demand for low-power, simple and cheap devices. A variety of such sensing/actuating devices can be embedded into a multifunctional lab-on-a-chip system and there actuate and in-situ characterize physical and chemical processes on micro- and nanometer scale. A CMOS-compatible technology is desired to enable the low-cost production in large quantities and in large arrays in standard IC factories with a minimum of dedicated post processing and a short development period.
