The self assembly mechanism of biomolecular monomers into nanometer scale fibrils provides the opportunity to investigate their possible use as biomolecular nanowires. Silicon process technology, both typical and novel, is used to fabricate the sensors on the nanometer scale. The presentation will review the progress towards biomolecular nanowire sensors.
