Mechanical Characterization of Biomolecules in Liquid using Silicon Tweezers with Subnanonewton Resolution

Abstract

Molecular biophysicists seek to understand how biological systems work through mechanical or electrical characterizations performed at the molecular scale. From this perspective, we have devised a silicon-based micromechanical tool for stress-strain measurements of molecular fibers and demonstrated micromanipulation and biomechanical characterization of DNA… (More)
