An EOSFET or electrolyte-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistor is a FET
Fet
Fet is a municipality in Akershus county, Norway. It is part of the Romerike traditional region. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Fetsund.Fet was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838...

, like a MOSFET
MOSFET
The metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor is a transistor used for amplifying or switching electronic signals. The basic principle of this kind of transistor was first patented by Julius Edgar Lilienfeld in 1925...

, but with the metal replaced by electrolyte
Electrolyte
In chemistry, an electrolyte is any substance containing free ions that make the substance electrically conductive. The most typical electrolyte is an ionic solution, but molten electrolytes and solid electrolytes are also possible....

 solution for the detection of neuron
Neuron
A neuron is an electrically excitable cell that processes and transmits information by electrical and chemical signaling. Chemical signaling occurs via synapses, specialized connections with other cells. Neurons connect to each other to form networks. Neurons are the core components of the nervous...

al activity. Many EOSFETs are integrated in a neurochip
Neurochip
A neurochip is a chip that is designed for the interaction with neuronal cells.- Formation :It is made of silicon that is doped in such a way that it contains EOSFETs that can sense the electrical activity of the neurons in the above-standing physiological electrolyte solution...
