Stability of DNA-linked nanoparticle crystals: effect of number of strands, core size, and rigidity of strand attachment.

Abstract

Three-dimensional ordered lattices of nanoparticles (NPs) linked by DNA have potential applications in novel devices and materials, but most experimental attempts to form crystals result in amorphous packing. Here we use a coarse-grained computational model to address three factors that impact the stability of bcc and fcc crystals formed by DNA-linked NPs… (More)
