ABSTRACT
Highly c-axis oriented Al and Fe co-doped ZnO (ZAF) thin film is prepared by pulsed laser deposition. Fe introduces redox centre along with shallow donor level while Al doping enhances conductivity of ZnO, thus removing the requirement of both mediator and bottom conducting layer in bioelectrode. Model enzyme (glucose oxidase), was immobilized on surface of ZAF matrix. Cyclic voltammetry and photometric assay show that prepared bio-electrode is sensitive to glucose concentration with enhanced response of 0.18 μAmM-1cm-2 and low Km ∼ 2.01 mM. The results illustrate that ZAF is an attractive matrix for realization of miniaturized mediator-less solid state biosensor.
