    The book represents a systematic look at nanoparticle risks within the paradigm of risk assessment, consider the limitations of this paradigm in dealing with the extreme uncertainties regarding many aspects of nanoparticle exposure and toxicity, and suggest new methods for assessing and managing risks in this context. It considers the occupational environment where the potential for human exposure is the greatest as well as the issues relevant to occupational exposure assessment (e.g., the exposure metric) and the evidence from toxicological and epidemiological studies. A chapter is devoted to how conventional risk assessment can be carried out for a candidate nanoparticle (e.g., carbon nanotubes), and the limitations that arise from this approach. The authors propose several alternate methods in another chapter including screening assessments and adapting the rich methodological literature on the use of experts for risk assessment. Another chapter deals with non-occupational populations, their susceptibilities, and life-cycle risk assessments. There is a chapter on current risk management and regulatory oversight frameworks and their adequacy. This chapter also includes a discussion of US and EU approaches to risk assessment, as well as corporate approaches.

    β-barrel outer membrane channel proteins (OMP) have great potential as robust and flexible models or components in nanotechnology. Over the last decade biotechnological techniques allowed to expand the natural characteristics of OMPs by modifying their geometry and properties without affecting the overall protein structure and stability. The present book is oriented towards a broad group of readers including graduate students and advanced researchers. The β-barrel structure serviceability for the nano-material design will be its chief topic giving a general introduction to the field of OMP based nano-component development as well as the state of the art of the involved research. On the example of the E. coli FhuA the transformation of an OMP into a tailored nano-channel to be adapted to a non-biological synthetic (i.e. polymer) environment, rendering it competitive with artificial non-biological nano-pores will be outlined specifically the design of a set of protein nano-channels with tailored geometry (diameter, length), conductance and functionality will be reported as a case study. In order to make this book a valuable source of information for both biotechnologists and other scientists interested in bio-nanotechnology an overview of the different steps involved in the nano-channel protein design and production will be reported. The scientific strategy from concept design, theoretical considerations, genetic engineering and large scale production, to system assembly and biophysical characterization with an overview on technological applications including membrane/polymersome technology, will be described.

    Fluorescence microscopy is one of the most widely used tools in cell biology due its intrinsically high detection sensitivity coupled with the ability to genetically label proteins and other cellular structures with fluorescent tags. However, the resolution of fluorescence microscopy has historically been limited to about 200 nm laterally and 800 nm axially because of the diffraction limit of visible light. In the past five years, imaging below the diffraction limit ("super-resolution imaging") by localizing single fluorophores, one at a time (1-3), has opened a wide a variety of new biological systems for study. This Dissertation is a collection of both techniques for two and three dimensional super-resolution imaging as well as applications in bacterial and yeast imaging. References 1.

    "The advent of nanotechnology has unleashed enormous prospects for the development of new products and applications for a wide range of industrial and consumer sectors. The new technological developments have already opened up a multibillion dollar industry in recent years, the global market impact of which is expected to reach US$1 trillion by 2015, with around 2 million workers. While the majority of manufacturing and use of nanoscale materials occurs in the United States, the European Union, with its around 30 percent global share of the sector, is not lagging far behind in this field. Like other sectors, nanotechnology promises to revolutionize the whole food chain--from production to processing, storage, and development of innovative materials, products and applications. Although the potential applications of nanotechnoloy are wide ranging, the current applications in the food and agricultural sectors are relatively few, because the science is still newly emergent. An overview of more than 800 nanotechnology-based consumer products that are currently available worldwide, suggests that only around 10 percent of these are foods, beverages and food packaging products. However, nanotechnology-derived products and applications in these sectors have been steadily increasing in recent years, and are predicted to grow rapidly in the future. This is because the new technologies have a great potential to address many of the industry's current needs." - p. 3

    Photonic nanocavities are wavelength-scale dielectric structures that possess remarkable properties due to their intrinsic small sizes and high quality factors. Simply by modifying the device materials and optical properties, one can realize nanocavities for diverse applications ranging from lasers to quantum optics and even biosensing. In this dissertation work, two drastically different functions of nanocavities are presented, both of which make them more practical for real-world adoption. The first part of this dissertation will focus on engineered optical devices for interconnect applications in computing and communications. We have shown that heavily doped germanium on silicon can be used as a CMOS-compatible light source with peak emission at 1.5 microns. Microdisk resonators were fabricated and shown to sustain cavity resonances through both photoluminescence (PL) and electroluminescence (EL) measurements. To access these microresonators, we developed a coupling process using a tapered optical fiber and further showed the versatility of these fibers by using them to tune the cavity wavelength. High performance optical sources were then demonstrated in a gallium arsenide platform containing embedded quantum dots (QDs). We have developed a new platform for efficiently driving photonic crystal (PC) cavities using a lithographically defined, lateral p-i-n junction. With our lateral junction we have demonstrated a world record low threshold laser with a threshold power of only 208 nW at 50K. At room temperature we find that these same devices behave as ultra-fast light-emitting diodes which can be directly modulated at up to 10 GHz with operational energies below 1 fJ/bit. Additional active photonic devices incorporating a lateral junction such as electro-optic modulators and photodetectors were also created using this same platform. The second part of this dissertation describes the demonstration of a whole new class of tools geared towards biomedical photonics that marry PC cavities to the tips of optical fibers. The form factor of the optical fiber lends itself to operation of the tool in exotic environments never before accessible to a nanocavity. Fiber-cavity hybrid devices were constructed using a custom epoxy-based assembly procedure which successfully relocates the small semiconductor templates containing nanocavities. The completed device, called a fiberPC, was then used as a sensor to detect gold nanoparticles through optical readout. We have used our probes to interrogate single human prostate cells with internalized PC cavities showing, for the first time, resonant photonic modes inside biological cells. The beams can be loaded in cells and tracked for days at a time, with cells undergoing regular division and migration. Furthermore, we present in vitro label-free protein sensing with our probes as a path towards quantitative, real-time biomarker detection in single cells. The developed tool may find future applications in drug screening, cancer detection, and fundamental cell biology.

    Nanotechnology has the unique capability of manipulating and sensing matter at the molecular scale with unprecedented speed, sensitivity, and throughput. The medical application of nanotechnology, nanomedicine, has leveraged nanoscience tools for the advancement of medical diagnostics, therapy, and basic science research. In this work, arrays of magnetically responsive nanosensors, originally developed for use as read heads in computer hard disk drives, have been utilized to achieve in-depth proteomic studies for the advancement of medical diagnostics and therapy. In particular, this dissertation will focus on the following four topics of applying magnetic nanotechnology to science and medicine. First, the application of magnetic nanosensor arrays to early cancer diagnostics and monitoring response to chemotherapy. The utility of magnetic nanosensors as a molecular diagnostics tool capable of profiling a patient's disease state and leveraging a patient's unique molecular signature will be demonstrated. Second, this report will discuss a novel mathematical model expressly developed to describe the kinetic interactions of magnetically labeled biomolecules binding to capture agents immobilized on a surface. Third, a novel autoassembly immunoassay capable of screening for antibody cross-reactivity in a high-density, high-fidelity, and rapid manner will be described. Finally, this report will address the utility of the autoassembly immunoassay in conjunction with a miniaturized magnetic nanosensor platform for point-of-care diagnostics in a cost-effective and easy-to-use (e.g. wash-free) process that can make a significant contribution to global health.

    Nanotechnology has had a transformative effect on medical diagnostics due to the influx of new sensing modalities and transducers. Magnetic nanotechnologies, in particular, have shown significant potential in several areas of nanomedicine such as imaging, therapeutics, and early disease detection. Giant magnetoresistive spin-valve (GMR SV) sensors, commonly used in hard disk drives, coupled with magnetic nanotags have shown great promise as biosensors. In this work, we present several custom designed circuit interface and readout systems tailored to specific application spaces and their unique needs. Taken together, we have demonstrated that innovative electronic circuits play an indispensable role in unlocking the tremendous potential of nanosensors in the biomedical arena. The first system was designed for ultrasensitive early cancer diagnostics and built using off-the-shelf components for an 8x8 array of GMR SV sensors. At the core of this design, we demonstrate a new circuit architecture based on a transimpedance amplifier (TIA) with a carrier suppression technique to reduce the dynamic range requirement and a multiplexing scheme to reduce the readout time. This system is capable of real-time, multiplex detection with a detection limit of 5 femtomolar (fM) and over 6 orders of linear dynamic range. The second system is a miniaturized, portable platform called the nanoLAB. Although there is a growing need for point-of-care (POC) testing for global health, the current options are bulky, slow, expensive, and often not sensitive. The nanoLAB addresses these needs and pushes the state of the art with sensitive 8-plex detection using a wash-free assay that can be run by anyone, anywhere. This platform was tested and validated using human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) biomarkers with detection down to 50 fM in as little as 15 minutes. We also show how a GMR SV biosensor can be integrated into a continuous time sigma delta modulator. This proof-of-concept hybrid sigma delta modulator has a peak SNR of 99.3 dB and a dynamic range of over 92 dB in a 1 kHz bandwidth using the sensor as part of the first integrator. The carrier suppression and multiplexing concepts were also incorporated into the hybrid sigma delta modulator. Lastly, we conclude by describing an integrated platform for a large 16x16 array of GMR SV sensors implemented in a 0.18 [mu]m CMOS technology. Arranged like an imager chip, each of the 16 column level readout channels contains an analog front-end and an analog-to-digital converter. Each readout channel occupies less than 0.2 mm^2 of chip area and consumes 3.4 mW of power. This system is designed as a replacement for optical protein microarrays while being fully quantitative and providing real-time readout.

    As imaging technologies and approaches have evolved, the scope of certain imaging techniques has moved far beyond the production of purely illustrative images or appealing time-lapse movies to providing the scientist with a rich range of ways to measure and quantify the biological process and outcome of gene expression. In Imaging Gene Expression: Methods and Protocols, expert authors offer up-to-date approaches and protocols that scientists in the field have developed, which would benefit the broader scientific community. Divided in three convenient parts, this detailed book covers the output of a gene, namely the RNA molecules that are transcribed from the gene and the way by which these molecules can be tracked or quantified in fixed or living cells, protocols that focus on the gene, DNA, or chromatin, as well as a variety of ways by which nuclear processes intertwined with gene expression can be followed and quantified in living cells as well as approaches for studying several sub-nuclear structures found in eukaryotic cells. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective subjects, lists of materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and up-to-date, Imaging Gene Expression: Methods and Protocols will serve researchers working toward imaging in the context of complete organisms.

    Nanoscience and nanotechnology have been applied in recent years to cancer research, with the goal of bringing about a revolutionary change in the ways in which cancer is diagnosed and treated. Magnetic nanotechnologies, in particular, have shown significant potential in several areas, such as imaging, therapeutics, early detection, and point-of-care therapy monitoring. Most applications of magnetic nanotechnology in cancer research involve the use of nanoscale magnetic carriers. Depending on the properties of the particular carrier and the manner in which they are employed, magnetic carriers can act as MRI contrast enhancing agents, drug delivery vehicles, bio-labels for detection with magnetic biosensors, or selection agents in immunomagnetic separation platforms. The small sizes (10-100 nm), functional surface chemistries, and controllable magnetic responses of nanoscale magnetic carriers allows for interaction with and control of biological entities in both novel and powerful ways. The focus of this thesis is on a specific application of magnetic carriers -- magnetic separation of biomolecules and rare cells. After an introduction and an overview of magnetic separation principles are given in Chapters 1 and 2, Chapters 3-6 discuss the design, fabrication, and use of a novel magnetic separation device, the magnetic sifter. The magnetic sifter is a microfabricated, 7 x 7 mm planar die containing a dense array of pores (~200-5000/mm^2) in a magnetically soft membrane. When magnetized by an external field, the sifter pores generate large magnetic field gradients (~10^6 T/m) near the pore edges, which can capture nanoscale magnetic carriers with high efficiency and throughput. The gradients can be turned off by removing the external field, and the magnetic carriers can be released. The magnetic sifter is a microfluidic device, in the sense that it contains microfabricated, micron-scale pores which generate large field gradients. It is also a macrofluidic device, in that high volume throughput is achieved by parallel flow through the dense array of pores. Magnetic modeling of the magnetic sifter and a method for its fabrication are presented in Chapters 3 and 4. When paired with magnetic carriers functionalized with recognition moieties, the magnetic sifter can be used in both protein and cell enrichment schemes. The focus of Chapter 5 is on using the magnetic sifter to capture individual magnetic nanoparticles. The intended application is for enrichment of cancer protein markers prior to detection with a magnetic spin-valve biosensor. High capture efficiencies (80-100%) of magnetic nanoparticles have been achieved for a single pass through the magnetic sifter. Magnetic nanoparticles can also be released from the magnetic sifter with nearly 100% efficiency. The focus of Chapter 6 is the use of the magnetic sifter for rare cell enrichment, for applications in enumeration and enrichment of circulating tumor cells. It is shown that the magnetic sifter can capture tumor cells from whole blood with high efficiency and throughput (~60% at 5 ml/hr). Furthermore, with its planar structure and presentation of captured cells, the magnetic sifter doubles as a cell imaging platform, allowing for identification and quantification with optical microscopy. In addition to its high capture efficiency and gentle release of captured cells, the small size and scalable fabrication of the magnetic sifter are attractive for applications in point-of-care cancer diagnostics for early detection and monitoring of metastatic disease. In Chapter 7, a method for high-throughput fabrication of novel magnetic carriers, synthetic antiferromagnetic (SAF) nanoparticles is presented. The method has enabled production of large quantities of SAF nanoparticles, which have desirable properties for applications in magnetic separation. The capture and release behavior of SAF nanoparticles with the magnetic sifter has been demonstrated. High capture efficiencies are achieved at flow rates 10-20x higher than what was previously possible with commercially available magnetic carriers. Both the magnetic sifter and physically fabricated SAF nanoparticles offer unique advantages over traditional technologies. They are each, in their own right, promising new technologies for applications in cancer detection and therapy monitoring.

    In recent years there has been a growing interest in utilizing nanomaterials for drug delivery and biomedical imaging applications. This work focuses on the development of two multifunctional graphitic-carbon based nanomaterials capable of acting as both drug delivery agents and as contrast agents for either magnetic resonance imaging or near-infrared fluorescence imaging. Both of these agents heat under near-infrared light and are capable of loading chemotherapy drugs making them multifunctional in nature. The first material discussed is a FeCo-graphitic carbon nanocrystal loaded with doxorubicin. Addition of near-infrared photothermal therapy significantly increases the cellular toxicity of these nanocrystals in vitro. Treatment of breast cancer tumors in mice using combined nanocrystal drug delivery and photothermal therapy resulted in complete tumor regression in 45% of mice. The imaging capability of these nanocrystals is demonstrated through high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging of microvessels in rabbits. The potential long-term biodistribution and safety of this material is evaluated. The second graphitic-carbon nanomaterial used in this work is single-walled carbon nanotubes. This material is developed as a deep-tissue fluorescent imaging agent due to their inherit photoluminescence beyond 1 micron. This light emission is demonstrated to be particularly useful for in vivo imaging by minimizing light scattering by tissues leading to crisp anatomical resolution.

    Biosensors are used for detecting biological molecules such as proteins and nucleic acids. Traditional techniques, such as Enzyme-linked Immuno-sorbent Assay (ELISA) are sensitive but require several hours to yield results and usually require attaching a fluorophore molecule to the target molecule. The creation of label-free, fast, more accurate and integrated detection devices is imperative and we are increasingly looking to the nano-world for such technology. Micro-machined biosensors that employ electrical detection are now being developed. Impedance biosensor is a class of electrical biosensors that shows promise for point-of-care and other applications due to low cost, ease of miniaturization and label-free operation. Critically important component of any bio-detection system is the core biosensor device. Here we have designed, developed, tested and optimized a nano-biosensor that is configured and fabricated using silicon process technology. Electrical nano-sensors rely on label free detection of biochemical reactions in real time. These electrical sensors can measure impedance change as an electrical 'signature' of the nucleic acid or proteins interactions via a number of different mechanisms that are determined by their specific design and geometry. These nano-sensor designs will lead to an improvement in sensitivity by increasing the signal to noise ratio which results in more accurate readings through a reduction of spurious signal generation. We have developed a nano-bridge biosensor with a depletion-mode silicon 'nano-resistor' for the detection of DNA and protein at very low concentrations. In order to achieve higher sensitivity the sensing surface area is significantly increased as well as doping profile of impurities in silicon nano-resistor is optimized.. In contrast to a conventional Si enhancement mode MOSFET, this device behaves similar to depletion mode MOSFET, thereby it is always in the "ON" state, and no threshold voltage is needed to turn it into the active sensing mode. In addition signal calibration is not required due to a linear I-Vg characteristic at low Vg. The nano-bridge design has been optimized for maximal [Delta]I/I. The linearity of the response shows that the design will allow measurement of charge induced changes over a wide range with no threshold and high signal to noise ratios. To increase sensing throughput we will flow the solution containing the target molecules over an array of such sensing structures each of which has its own integrated readout circuitry that will offer 'real-time' detection (i.e. several minutes) of un-labeled molecules without sacrificing sensitivity. These electrical nano-biosensors are much more suited for the development of affordable bio-detection platforms, because they do not require expensive labeling reagents, rely on fabrication processes well established in the semiconductor IC industry, do not need bulky, expensive optical readout systems, and more importantly, can generate data on real time. One of the most important issues in the design of these sensor devices is to achieve high signal to noise ratio in order to make them amenable to sensitive detection of biological events, molecular interactions or chemical reactions. In order to improve the sensitivity and signal to noise ratio and to address the need for high density array construction we have designed and partially tested a nano-scale sensor with spatial structure, type and signal detection principles. The nano-bridge sensor is a double-gated depletion-mode semiconductor nano-resistive sensor. The structure and fabrication of these sensors will lead to improved sensitivity and greater accuracy of DNA hybridization detection up to 10 fM.

    "This book explores the enormous diversity in social perspectives on the emergence of nanoscale sciences and technologies. It points to four nodes of interest where nano meets macro: in the making, in the public eye, in the big questions, and in the tough decisions. Each node draws attention to important lines of research and pertinent issues. The book is designed for interdisciplinary teaching, but the richness of issues and perspectives makes it of interest to all researchers, practitioners, and non-academics wanting an introduction to social perspectives on nanoscale sciences and technologies."

    Abstract: The small scale of nano-materials makes them one of the best man-made candidates to interact with biological systems at subcellular or even molecular level. It has been the focal point of the research interests to interfacing live cells with one dimensional nanostructures, such as nanowires and nanopillars. In my Phd research, I have utilized nanopillar based structures and devices to interface biological cells electrically, optically and mechanically. 1. We achieve improved electric interface between biological cells and solid state device by using arrays of vertically aligned nanopillar electrodes. Their tight attachment to the cell membrane allows us to acquire intracellular-like action potential signals non-destructively from cultured cardiomyocytes, which is responsible for various important cellular functions. 2. We demonstrate below-the-diffraction-limit observation volume in vitro and inside live cells by using vertically aligned silicon dioxide nanopillars. With a diameter much smaller than the wavelength of visible light, a transparent silicon dioxide nanopillar embedded in a nontransparent substrate restricts the propagation of light and affords evanescence wave excitation along its vertical surface. This effect creates highly-confined illumination volume that selectively excites fluorescence molecules in the vicinity of the nanopillar. We show that this nanopillar illumination can be used for in vitro single molecule detection with high fluorescence background. In addition, we demonstrate that vertical nanopillars interface tightly with live cells and function as highly localized light sources inside the cell. Furthermore, chemical modification of the nanopillar surface provides a unique way to locally recruit proteins of interest and simultaneously observe their behavior within the complex, crowded environment of the cell. 3. We engineer and fabricate vertically nanopillar arrays, and culture various types of cells atop. We study the cell growth pattern in presence of nanopillar arrays, including attachment, migration, etc. We also design patterned nanopillar arrays and utilized them to guide and control cell growth via cell-nanopillar interaction.
