Title: NANOWIRE SENSOR HAVING A NANOWIRE AND ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTIVE FILM
Abstract:
A nanowire sensor includes a first electrode, a second electrode, and a sensing element connecting the first electrode and the second electrode. The sensing element includes at least one nanowire connecting the first electrode and the second electrode and an electrically conductive film covering the at least one nanowire and extending between and contacting the first electrode and the second electrode, wherein conductance of the electrically conductive film is configured to change in the presence of at least one species to enable detection of the at least one species.
