Sample text

The nature of surfaces in general, and of biosensors in particular (our case), should exhibit a fractal nature at the molecular level. Furthermore, one of the reasons for the emphasis on nanotechnology is that as one goes down in scale, the properties Chapter j 2 33 Modeling and Theory of some substances change, sometimes for the better. It is these beneficial changes that one wishes to exploit in nanotechnology and nanobiotechnology. Hopefully, similar parallels can be drawn on analyzing the fractal nature of biosensor surfaces.

This equation is associated with the short-term diffusional properties of a random walk on a fractal surface. Note that, in perfectly stirred kinetics on a regular (nonfractal) structure (or surface), the binding rate coefficient, k1, is a constant, that is, is independent of time. In other words, the limit of regular structures (or surfaces) and the absence of diffusion-limited kinetics leads to k1 being independent of time. In all other situations, one would expect a scaling behavior given by k1 w k0 teb with eb ¼ p < 0.

When both of these are present, that is the diffusion phenomena as well as a fractal surface, then one needs to analyze the interplay of both these fluctuations. In essence, the disorder on the surface (or a higher fractal dimension, Df) tends to slow down the motion of a particle (analyte, in our 30 Biomarkers and Biosensors case) moving in such a medium. Basically, according to Weiss (1994), the particle (random-walker analyte) is trapped in regions in space as it oscillates for a long time before resuming its motion.
