Abstract

A number of solid-state devices yield useful chemical information based on interactions between molecules and molecule-sized features on the device. These include nanopores, nanowire field-effect transistor sensors, nanoscale redox sensors, and tunnel junctions. Here, we consider the electrochemical requirements needed for the stable operation of such devices. We also review the sources of noise and show how the correlations in noise generated by nanoscale sensors can be used to carry out single-molecule spectroscopy.
