Summary There are two ways in which swCNT-FETs respond to changes in the redox potential of solution: 1)Response of gold gate electrode to redox couple shifts the electrostatic potential of the solution. 2)At elevated redox potentials, the nanotubes themselves are oxidized by the oxidized member of the redox couple raising the concentration of p-type charge carriers (holes) which increases the nanotube conductance (Isd current).
Model for modulation of conductance Solution Electric potential controlled by the applied gate voltage. Induces an electric potential on the nanotube. (Need solution-CNT & quantum capacitance.) Potential on the nanotube shifts the band, induces carriers, changing conductance.
Interface of gate and solution: electrochemical equilibrium Gate electrode area dominates Interfacial resistance dominates Gate voltage determines potential in solution through the Nernst equation
Interface between solution and CNT: insulated For devices in water and for high salt concentrations, the electric potential experienced by the CNT is nearly identical to that in solution.
