3 Main results obtained in IMT-Bucharest –Laboratory of Nanotechnology
4 Nanoelectrode array - SEM details Some advantages of these electrodes:(i) this kind of nanoelectrodes can be fabricated through the common photolithographic technique - ultraviolet light proximity and does not involve other special lithographic techniques;(ii) these electrodes are never recessed;(iii) the array consists of a series of nanoelectrodes separated by an insulating material with sufficient spacing to avoid the overlapping of the diffusion layers.
5 NE Biomedical applications: eukaryote and prokaryote cells ELECTROCHEMICAL CELL ON A CHIPCHO cells on NE arrayinvestigation of the electrochemical bacteria activity;study of the electron transfer from living cells to the electrode arrays by electrochemical measurements;conduction measurement on living cell cultures;
6 Nanostructured silicon reactor for cell investigation
7 POROUS SILICON presents the advantage over other bioactive materials because it is compatible with silicon integrated circuit technologyThe lab-on-a-chip with POROUS SILICON reactor integrated with other electrical and optical Si devices is an useful tool to investigate cells answer to various stimuli such as drug solutions, electric impulses, or change of the temperaturePS surface functionalisation can be achieved by thermal, chemicaland physico-chemical treatments:(i) thermal treatments in O2 (two steps process);(ii) thin carbon, or silicon carbide layer deposition;(iii) surface derivatizationPOROUS SILICON is a biocompatible and bioactive substrate which facilitates the adhesion and proliferation of various cell
8 CHO cells on 31% PS / Sip+ (100), with the surface modified by a 30nm carbon (10x)PS/p+Si (100), 31% porosity, annealed in N2 and cultivated with B16-F1 cells (20x);Fluorescence images obtained for CHO cell lines grown on PS surfaceafter 1 and 3 days respectively
9 Resorbable porous silicon nanocomposite reservoirs for mineral or drug delivery Fe(NO3)3 deposition as powder, followed by melting at 470CSpin-on of a mixing etoxyetanoland Fe(NO3)3Samples with Fe / PS / Si –n (cross section)Fe release was investigated in SBF solution.In the first days a strong Fe release was observed due to the dissolution of the iron salt from the PS poresAfter that the iron release takes place in the same time with the degradation of the PS matrix in SBF solution.
