Focus Issue on Solid-State Materials and Devices for Biological and Medical Applications II

This focus issue of ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology aims to cover emerging solid-state materials and devices for fundamental biological study, for personal healthcare, for environmental monitoring, for food or water safety, and for disease diagnosis and therapy. A new class of solid-state materials and devices have shown great potential in the applications in biology and medicine, due to their unique electronic and photonic materials properties and miniaturized devices as well as the capability in industrial production. Topics of interest include, but are not limited, to the following:

  • Interaction between solid materials and biomolecules
  • Field-effect-transistors, triboelectric nanogenerators, impedance analysis, surface plasma resonance, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, surface acoustic wave devices, and quartz crystal microbalance for biological detection
  • New methodology for chemical detection
  • Portable bioelectronic system for medical applications
  • Single cell detection and analysis
  • Integrated sensors and microfluidic devices
  • Nanopore and nano-slit bioelectronics
  • Bio-molecular devices for energy harvest
  • Semiconductor devices for DNA sequencing
  • Extracellular vesicles study
  • Electronic noses
  • Field-deployed devices for air and water monitoring
  • Electric stimulation for wound healing

Accepting Submissions: April 2, 2020 | Submission Deadline: July 1, 2020

(At the time of submission, indicate that the paper is intended for the Solid-State Materials and Devices focus issue.)
