The global combat against COVID-19 epidemic has proved the critical role of fast and accurate bio-detection technologies. The current prevailing sensing processes heavily rely on various immunoassay and PCR technologies, which are relatively time-consuming, expensive and instrument-dependent. In this project, we aim to develop novel sensing technologies based on two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials for highly efficient biological detections. Three main detection systems will be developed based on a variety of 2D nanomaterials including electronic, fluorescence and electrochemical sensors. A series of wet-chemical synthesis and chemical vapordeposition methods will be used for preparation of 2D nanomaterials including graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, 2D metal-organic frameworks and 2D covenant-organic frameworks. We will further develop a series of algorithms for the analyzing and benchmarking the performance of our proposed three biosensing platforms to compare their performance, portability, reliability and cost in the detection of many important biological substances.
