We show that the electron-transfer protein azurin can be used to fabricate biomolecular rectifiers exploiting its native redox properties, chemisorption capability and electrostatic features. The devices consist of a protein layer interconnecting nanoscale electrodes fabricated by electron beam lithography.

Abstract

We show that the electron-transfer protein azurin can be used to fabricate biomolecular rectifiers exploiting its native redox properties, chemisorption capability and electrostatic features. The devices consist of a protein layer interconnecting nanoscale electrodes fabricated by electron beam lithography. They exhibit a rectification ratio as large as 500 at 10 V, and operate at room temperature and in air.
