Solid-state nanopores have emerged as sensors for single molecules and these have been employed to examine the biophysical properties of an increasingly large variety of biomolecules. Herein we describe a novel and facile approach to precisely adjust the pore size, while simultaneously controlling the surface chemical composition of the solid-state nanopores. Specifically, nanopores fabricated using standard ion beam technology are shrunk to the requisite molecular dimensions via the deposition… CONTINUE READING
