Microfluidics Interface Helps Push Two-legged Nanobot

May 13, 2017

A team of researchers in Israel has made a bipedal motor from DNA that can be controlled using a computer-based microfluidics-based interface. The molecular machine, which can “walk” on a DNA origami track in response to DNA fuel and [more...]

Feeling the Heat in Cells

April 17, 2017

The gallium nitride nanomembrane (GaN NM) is shown attached to a cell. When a pulsed laser is directed onto the nanomembrane, heat is transferred to the cell via a gold microdisc. By monitoring the emitted photoluminescent light (blue [more...]
