报告摘要:
One of the main principles underlying fluorescent sensors is based on PET (photoinduced electron
transfer), according to which a switching ‘on’ of fluorescence in response to chemical and
biochemical analytes can be designed. Since its generalization in Colombo, Sri Lanka, it has now
grown to involve 500 laboratories around the world. Some of these sensor systems are serving in
critical care units in hospitals and in ambulances, performing blood diagnostics. These form the
basis of a half-billion-dollar industry. Other sensors visualize intracellular players. Yet others map
species distributions in nanometric spaces near membranes. These spaces are too small for the
tiniest silicon-based wireless devices to enter. Our introduction of molecular logic gates from Belfast,
Northern Ireland, allows us to build more complex sensors and micro-object identification systems.
More complex logic operations and even human-scale computations, e.g. edge detection of objects
and outline drawing, are now achieved by molecular systems. 710 laboratories have contributed to
this field so far. A short video is available at www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLGnZDP5Ecg。
