White wins MRS presentation award

Dec. 4, 2015 - CEMS graduate student Scott White was one of four winners to receive a financial award for best oral presentation at the 2015 Materials Research Society (MRS) fall meeting and exhibit in Boston, Massachusetts. White is co-advised by Professors Kevin Dorfman and C. Daniel Frisbie. His winning presentation, "Operating Mechanism of Biosensors Utilizing Floating-Gate Transistors and Electrolyte Dielectrics" explained that a floating-gate transistor can transduce the capture of biomolecules on the floating-gate surface from the neighboring electrolyte. In order to define the origin of previously reported electronic signals the research team performed a systematic study of floating-gate organic transistors fabricated with electrolyte gating media.The presented results outlined the operation modes of previous organic electronic biosensor research and will help guide the design of other electronic devices utilizing electrolyte dielectrics.
