Flexible, Transparent Glucose Sensors Based on CuO Nanowire Networks

Description :  

The objective of the investigator of this research is to enhance glucose monitoring capabilities through the development of a simple and low cost glucose sensing scheme utilizing conductive networks of copper (II) oxide (CuO) nanowires as the main sensing element. In light of previous studies indicating that CuO materials are effective in enzyme-free glucose detection while providing extremely high surface area, the investigator aims to incorporate CuO nanowires into nanowire networks on thin, flexible substrates. Systematic evaluations of the electrical properties of the proposed networks will be conducted at varying glucose solution concentrations and substrate bending conditions in comparison to current state-of-the-art methods.
