Abstract

In2O3 nanowire and carbon nanotube transistors were used to study the chemical gating effects in response to LDL particles. Low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in blood constitutes a risk factor for coronary artery disease (heart attack). The interactions of LDL particles with these two different surfaces were investigated. The degree of LDL particles binding to carbon nanotubes was ten-fold higher than to In2O3 nanowires possibly owing to the hydrophobic/hydrophilic interactions. The conductance of field effect transistors (FET) based on nanowires and nanotubes showed complementary responses after exposure to LDL particles. While In2O3 nanowire transistors exhibited higher conductance accompanied by a negative shift of the threshold voltage, nanotube transistors displayed a lower conductance. This phenomenon was attributed to the complementary doping between the n-type In2O3 nanowires and p-type carbon nanotubes.
