Room-temperature transistor based on a single carbon nanotube
The use of individual molecules as functional electronic devices was first proposed in the 1970s (ref. 1). Since then, molecular electronics, has attracted much interest, particularly because itExpand

Electronic structure of atomically resolved carbon nanotubes
Carbon nanotubes can be thought of as graphitic sheets with a hexagonal lattice that have been wrapped up into a seamless cylinder. Since their discovery in 1991, the peculiar electronic propertiesExpand

Real-time imaging of DNA loop extrusion by condensin
Live imaging of DNA loop extrusion To spatially organize chromosomes, ring-shaped protein complexes including condensin and cohesin have been hypothesized to extrude DNA loops. Condensin has beenExpand

Salt dependence of ion transport and DNA translocation through solid-state nanopores.
We report experimental measurements of the salt dependence of ion transport and DNA translocation through solid-state nanopores. The ionic conductance shows a three-order-of-magnitude decrease withExpand
