The purpose of this paper is to describe recent research involving the application of biomimetic design concepts to nanosensor developments.
Following a short introduction to nanobiomimetic concepts, this paper discusses a range of recent nanosensor developments whose designs mimic or use naturally‐occurring nanostructures or nanomaterials.
This shows that biomimetic design concepts are being applied to a range of nanosensors which have been shown to respond to a range of physical and chemical variables, often with very high sensitivities. Potential applications include homeland security and military uses, healthcare and robotics.
This paper provides details of recent nanobiomimetic sensor research which has potential in a range of critical applications.
