A novel nanopore fabrication method is reported by thermally pulling a glass tube in a two step process. The principle is based on the physical footprint of the phase change of the paraffin sealed inside the glass tube to form a nanocavity in the broken terminal during the second step of the pulling process. A nanopore with minimum diameter of 40 nm is… CONTINUE READING
