Title: NANOPORE CELL WITH INCREASED CURRENT DENSITY
Abstract:
A nanopore cell is disclosed. The nanopore cell includes an electrolyte well having a bottom base, a surrounding sidewall, and a hydrophobic surface above the surrounding sidewall. The nanopore cell further includes a first layer of electrode material disposed on the bottom base of the electrolyte well. The nanopore cell further includes a second layer of electrode material disposed on the surrounding sidewall of the electrolyte well and electrically connected to the first layer of electrode material. The first layer of electrode material and the second layer of electrode material are configured to jointly provide capacitive coupling when an electrolyte is placed in the electrolyte well.
