A biological sensor based on fluorescent organic nanocrystals (NCs) of Rhodamine B grown in sol-gel thin films was developed. The original signalization function is based on fluorescence contrasts of NCs, which exhibit a simple fluorescence signature, good photostability and higher fluorescence intensities compared to dispersed dye molecules. Thanks to a well-controlled dissolution process of the sol-gel surface, accurately followed by atomic force microscopy, the NCs were made emerging just a few nanometers above the silicate thin films to be directly accessible to biological macromolecules. Thus, hairpin-shaped DNA, functionalized by a probe-molecule (DNA probe), has been grafted onto nanocrystal surfaces leading to a fluorescence quenching by Forster resonance energy transfer. After hybridization of these hairpin-shaped DNA probes with their complementary DNA-target, the molecular probes and NCs are pulled apart, stopping thus the quenching. This "turn-on" of nanocrystal fluorescence allows thus a label-free DNA detection. The preparation methodology of the signalization function, its functionalization by hairpin-shaped DNA probes and first DNA-sensor experiments are presented.
