Journal Article
Ghobaei Namhil, Z., Kemp, C., Verrelli, E., Iles, A., Pamme, N., Adawi, A. M., & Kemp, N. (2019). A label-free aptamer-based nanogap capacitive biosensor with greatly diminished electrode polarization effects. Physical chemistry chemical physics : PCCP, 21(2), 681-691. doi:10.1039/c8cp05510f

A significant impediment to the use of impedance spectroscopy in bio-sensing is the electrode polarization effect that arises from the movement of free ions to the electrode-solution interface, forming an electrical double layer (EDL). The EDL screen... Read More
