Electronic nanostructures templated on self-assembled DNA scaffolds

Journal Article (Academic article)

We report on the self-assembly of one- and two-dimensional DNA scaffolds, which serve as templates for the targeted deposition of ordered nanoparticles and molecular arrays. TheDNAnanostructures are easy to reprogram, and we demonstrate two distinct conformations: sheets and tubes. The DNA tubes and individual DNA molecules are metallized in solution to produce ultra-thin metal wires.
