Simulation of the passage of ion flows through nanotracks

  • Arnold Kiv South-Ukrainian National Pedagogical University
Keywords: cylindrical nanopore, ion flows, biosensors


A computer model of a cylindrical nanopore created using the classical method of molecular dynamics is described. The essential element of the model is the potential wells of the adsorption centers on the internal surface of nanopore, the depth of which is determined by the coefficient in Hooke's law. The model describes well experimental features of the passage of ion flows in real nanotracks in modern biosensors.
