Abstract

A tunable ionic diode is presented that is based on biomimetic structure-tailorable nanochannels, with precise ion-transport characteristics from ohmic behavior to bidirectional rectification as well as gating properties. The forward/reverse directions of the ionic diode and the degree of rectification can be well-regulated by combining the patterned surface charge and the sophisticated structure. This system creates an ideal platform for precise transportation of ions and molecules, and potential applications in analytical sciences are anticipated.
