About the content
This electronics course will focus on the physics of biomolecule detection in terms of three elementary concepts: response time, sensitivity, and selectivity. We will use potentiometric, amperometric, and cantilever-based mass sensors to illustrate the application of these concepts to specific sensor technologies. Learners in this course will be able to decide what sensors to make, appreciate their design principles, interpret measured results, and spot emerging research trends.
This electronics course is the latest in a science and engineering series offered by the nanoHUB-U project, which is jointly funded by Purdue University and the National Science Foundation.

Purdue University is a public university located in West Lafayette, Tippecanoe County, Indiana, USA.
It was founded on 6 May 1869 and in 2012 had over 39,000 students. It is known as the "Cradle of Astronauts" for having trained twenty-two future astronauts, including Neil Armstrong and Eugene Cernan. Many of the CEOs of Forbes 500 companies also graduated from Purdue University.
