Abstract

Field-effect biosensors based on nanowires enjoy considerable popularity due to their high sensitivity and direct electrical readout [1]. However, crucial issues such as the influence of the biomolecules on the charge-carrier transport or the binding of molecules to the surface have not been described satisfactorily yet in a quantitative manner. In order to analyze these effects, we present simulation results based on a 3D macroscopic transport model coupled with Monte-Carlo simulations for the bio-functionalized surface layer. Excellent agreement with measurement data has been found, while detailed study of the influence of the most prominent biomolecules, namely double-stranded DNA and single-stranded DNA, on the current through the semiconductor transducer has been carried out.
