Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are nearly ideal, one-dimensional nanostructures and exhibit other unique properties that may be useful in novel nanoelectronics and nanosensing applications. Here, the growth of SWNTs via chemical vapor deposition as well as the fabrication and electrical properties of SWNT devices as a field effect transistor (FETs) will be presented. We have used these SWNT-FET devices as highly sensitive nano-biosensors, namely, the in-situ detection of the protein molecule, cytochrome c. Results of these experiments will be used in elucidating the role of charge transfer and adsorption on the transport properties.
