Fluorescence enhancement of single DNA molecules confined in Si/SiO2 nanochannels

Author affiliations

Abstract

We demonstrate that the detected emission intensity from YOYO-labeled DNA molecules confined in 180 nm deep Si/SiO2 nanofunnels changes significantly and not monotonically with the width of the funnel. This effect may be of importance for quantitative fluorescence microscopy and for experiments with a tight photon budget.
