Nitrogen Vacancy Quantum Defects in Single Molecule Techniques for Nanoscale Sensing and Detection

Progress in biomedicine has always been paced by the advancement in nanotechnology-based platforms enabling molecular level detection. To resolve specific bio-molecular interactions biosensor devices employing electrochemical, thermometric, optical, and acoustic approaches have been remarkably increased over the last few decades. There is a high demand in cell biology, diagnosis and pharmacological research for the development of alternative techniques with high throughput and improved sensitivity. In this talk, I will discuss anti-Brownian electrokinetic (ABEL) trapping and dielectrophoretic (DEP) force spectroscopy techniques integrated with nitrogen vacancy (NV) quantum defects in diamond for the manipulation and sensing at single molecule level.
