Pre-requisite: Introductory courses on device physics & differential equations. If a first level course on devices has not been taken, students should get an introduction to the area by reading a book such as `Semiconductor Devices: Physics & Technology` by SM Sze [John Wiley, 2002]. The broad structure of the course would be: Weeks 1-2: Approaches to designing electronic systems Sensor classification & sensing principles Introduction to biosensors & bioMS Weeks 3-6: Semiconductor sensors for physical measurands Physicochemical sensors integrable on silicon Weeks 7-9:Biosensors: Structures & device analysis Catalytic biosensors Affinity biosensors Weeks 10-12: bioMS: Architectures & analytic models.
