Scanning the Controls : Genomics and Nanotechnology

  title={Scanning the Controls : Genomics and Nanotechnology},
  author={Robert H Austin and Jonas O. Tegenfeldt and Han Cao and Stephen Y. Chou and Edward C. Cox},
We outline some of the possible applications of nanotechnology to modern molecular biology and discuss several technologies that can be used to make nanoscale confining environments (channels or post arrays) for long polymers such as DNA. A particular emphasis is placed on making large arrays using nonelectron beam lithography methods. We then discuss how focused ion beam (FIB) milling can be used to construct nearfield slits for examining molecules.
