DNA-templated assembly of nanoscale wires and protein-functionalized nanogap contacts

Author affiliations

Abstract

The use of DNA to template the assembly of nanoscale wires and protein-functionalized nanogap contacts is described: Specifically, the use of DNA to template the assembly of gold nanowires between conventionally patterned gold contacts on a silicon wafer substrate. Also described is the use of DNA to template the assembly of protein-functionalized nanogap gold contacts on a silicon wafer substrate. Of particular significance is the finding that suitably modified gold nanoparticles recognize and bind selectively the protein-functionalized nanogap and are localized there.
