Applications of nanopipettes in the analytical sciences. Academic Article uri icon


  • In this review, we describe measurements and applications of interest to the analytical community that makes use of simple nanopipettes. Fabricated by applying heat during the separation of a glass capillary, nanopipettes provide a route for nanoscale studies of ion transport and for development of chemical and biochemical sensors. When mounted on a translation stage, nanopipettes also enable unique modes of imaging and material deposition. These facets of nanopipette research, as well as some of the unique properties of nanopipettes, will be discussed.
