Abstract:

In this project, the PIs have successfully demonstrated several methods for controlled assembly of inorganic nanostructures based on chemical and biochemical techniques. These results include - electroless metallization of DNA to form nanowire interconnects -lithographic modification of the surface chemistry to create patterns for attachment of DNA and metallic nanoparticles -single electron transistors based on individual nanoparticles -control of length and directionality of DNA superstructures by incorporation of double strand DNA bridges in stepwise assembly processes
