Direct coupling of aminosilane molecules onto the plasma hydroxylated InN surface is demonstrated. By using synchrotron-radiation photoelectron spectroscopy, the authors have studied the surface chemical properties of (3-aminopropyl)trimethoxysilane coupled InN. They have also found that the positively charged amine terminal groups on the functionalized InN surface can be utilized to bind negatively charged Au colloids (10 nm diameter) in aqueous solution. Combining with the existing bioconjugation techniques for Au colloids, this approach opens up the possibility of nanoparticle-biomolecular hybrid systems for chemical and biosensing using electronic devices based on surface-functionalized InN.
