Driven translocation of a semi-flexible chain through a nanopore: a Brownian dynamics simulation study in two dimensions.


We study translocation dynamics of a semi-flexible polymer chain through a nanoscopic pore in two dimensions using Langevin dynamics simulation in presence of an external bias F inside the pore. For chain length N and stiffness parameter κb considered in this paper, we observe that the mean first passage time <τ> increases as <τ(κb)>~<τ(κb=0)>lp(aN) , where… (More)
