Chemical and biological sensors are perhaps the next big opportunity for soft semiconductor materials. The advantage of soft semiconductors in this application is twofold: firstly, soft materials can follow the biological model of shape recognition using conformational signal transduction; secondly, soft semiconductors are an ideal interface between conventional electronic materials and the environment.

We are investigating signal transduction devices in both chemical sensors and proteomic sensors.
