MOSFET with organic gate

  1. Jan 13, 2006 #1
    Hey guys and girls,

    Just letting you know some of the work that a few people here at IMEC have been working on. This really is a serious enhancement towards the development of organic transistors. Basically, what happens is the replacement of the metal/poly-silicon gate in a MOSFET by an enzyme which can be used to detect neuro-transmitters. IMEC has created new patterning techniques to enhance this technology.

    I can see a good application for folks in my situation. A few different versions of the chips could keep tabs on seratonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine continuously and trigger demand-release reuptake inhibitors. It would be more convenient than remembering when to take my pills.
