Abstract: We identify a contribution to the ionic current noise spectrum in solid-state nanopores that exceeds all other noise sources in the frequency band 0.1-10 kHz. Experimental studies of the dependence of this excess noise on pH and electrolyte concentration indicate that the noise arises from surface charge fluctuations. A quantitative model based on surface functional group protonization predicts the observed behaviors and allows us to locally measure protonization reaction rates. This noise can be minimized by operating the nanopore at a deliberately chosen pH.
