Summary of Research:

  • Develop Magnetic Tunnel Junction (MTJ) nanosensors for large-scale recording and modulation of brain activity with high spatial and temporal resolution.
  • Develop a portable diagnostic platform based on Giant Magnetoresistor (GMR) nanosensors for multiplexed immunoassays.
  • Develop a search coil system for on-site Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) diagnosis.
  • Integrate Magnetic Flux Concentrator (MFC) with MTJ nanosensors to improve SNR of the MTJ sensor system.
