The article deals with the detection of chemical signaling events involving the secretion of transmitter molecules into the extracellular space, and associated efforts to detect such molecules and their concentration for enhancing fundamental understanding on disease-related cellular processes at a molecular level. It also provides information on imaging microbiosensors, shear-force-based amperometric biosensors and atomic force microscopy (AFM) tip-integrated amperometric biosensors.

    We present a sensor for the atomic force microscope (AFM) where a silicon cantilever is micromachined into the shape of interdigitated fingers that form a diffraction grating. When detecting a force, alternating fingers are displaced while remaining fingers are held fixed. This creates a phase...
