Developing generic platforms to organize discrete molecular elements and nanostructures into deterministic patterns at surfaces is one of the central challenges in the field of nanotechnology. Here we review three applications of the atomic force [...]

Templated virus deposition: from molecular-scale force measurements to kinetic Monte Carlo simulations

, , , , , , , , ,
The use of macromolecular scaffolds for hierarchical organization of molecules and materials is a common strategy in living systems that leads to emergent behavior. One characteristic of this strategy is that it generates micron-scale structures [...]
