The trend in molecular sensing has been continuously moving towards higher spatial/temporal resolutions and chemical sensitivities. Researchers in this field have been actively adapting well-established nanofabrication techniques from the semiconductor industry and created novel nanofabrication techniques necessary for nano-optical and nano-electronic structures. For example, employing advanced nano-fabrication techniques has led to the fabrication of the extreme nanoscale gaps in optical nano-antennas, nano-electrodes, and an array of sensing surfaces and significantly improved both spatial resolution and electromagnetic enhancement factors. Taking a step further, researchers are working on novel exciting nanoscale sensing structures such as tunable localized-surface-plasmon resonators capable of detecting a minute change in the refractive index, spectrally narrow Fano-resonance sensors, shape-optimized surface-enhanced-Raman spectroscopy platforms, nanoscale sensors for detecting a minute change in resistance or capacitance, nanoscale structures for observing and determining single molecule transport characteristics, and more.

In this session, we intend to bridge (1) the cutting-edge research in nanoscale sensing platforms carried out in the lab and (2) the practical adaptation of the outcomes by clinicians in translational medicine. These micro-/nanoscale sensors involve optical and possible combinations with mechanical, electronic, or chemical/molecular approaches and can be applied to therapeutics, diagnostics, imaging, sensing, and patient management. Both early stage conceptual investigations and early translational stage work will be presented.

The scope of the session includes (but is not limited) to the following topics:
- Nanofabrication strategies for molecular sensing
- Novel surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy platforms
- High sensitivity biochemical sensing via changes in optical or electrical signals
- Design considerations and new challenges for nano-sensor concepts
- Device integration of nano sensors
- Early stage adaptation of the aforementioned approaches in translational medicine
