The self-assembly of colloidal particles using DNA linker molecules has led to novel colloidal materials. This article describes the development and characterization of a new class of colloidal structures based on the directed assembly of DNA-linked paramagnetic particles. A key obstacle to assembling these structures is understanding the fundamental(More)
Axial rotational diffusion of rodlike polymers is important in processes such as microtubule filament sliding and flagella beating. By imaging the motion of small kinks along the backbone of chains of DNA-linked colloids, we produce a direct and systematic measurement of axial rotational diffusivity of rods both in bulk solution and near a wall.
