Biological nanopore MspA for DNA sequencing
Unlocking the information hidden in the human genome provides insight into the inner workings of complex biological systems and can be used to greatly improve health-care. In order to allow for widespread sequencing, new technologies are required that provide fast and inexpensive readings of DNA. Nanopore sequencing is a ...
Measurement of a solid-state triple point at the metal-insulator transition in vanadium dioxide
The first-ever accurate measurement of a solid-state triple point in vanadium dioxide was made by performing simultaneous optical and transport measurements on a purpose-built nanomechanical strain apparatus that actively controls the length of a single nanobeam with a nanometer precision. The nature of the metal-insulator ...
