Abstract

Implementation of one-dimensional nanostructure-based devices in the lab-on-a-chip framework can allow us to impart various functionalities such as highly-sensitive sensors to a single chip. However, it is still extremely difficult to position nanowires or nanotubes on a defined area of solid substrates to build integrated functional devices. Herein, we review promising strategies for the massive integration of nanowires/nanotubes on lab-on-a-chip and their practical applications to sensors. The theoretical understanding and sensor characteristics of nanowire/nanotube-based devices are also discussed.
