Mechanism and Free Energy of DNA Hybridization on Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Using Adaptive Biasing Force Simulations

, , , , , ,
DNA-carbon nanotube hybrids (DNA-NT) consist of single stranded DNA self-assembled to the sidewall of single-walled carbon nanotubes. DNA-NT show great promise for applications in nanotechnology, including chemical sensing and sequence-specific DNA detection. Details of the [...]

High Quality Nanogap Electrodes for Electronic Transport Measurements of Single Molecules

, , , , , ,
Single molecule-based electronic devices hold the potential for higher density and higher performance applications in medicine, sensing, computing and photovoltaics. Experimentally, metal-molecule-metal (MMM) junctions provide a system for measuring molecular electronic properties directly. We developed [...]
