This manuscript presents a dielectric modulated doping-less dual metal Gate Tunnel Field Effect Transistor (DL-DMG-TFET) sensor. In which a nano-cavity is presented above the tunnelling point to recognize the bio-molecule like amino acids (AAs), protein, and so on the proposed P+ and N+ sections are invented relying on the electrode's work-function on silicon body. The impacts of metal work regulation, cavity length and thickness variety are investigated for improving band-to-band tunnelling probability at the source-channel intersection. The proposed structure shows perceptible affectability results for neutral and charged biomolecules. The sensitivity of the higher dielectric constant bio-molecules are higher as compared to bio-molecule having lower dielectric constant; the drain current sensitivity of the Gelatin (k=12) is assessed as which is 13% and 35% higher than the affectability of Keratin (k=10) and Bacteriophage T7 (k=5) separately at the nano-cavity length of 30 nm.
