Molecular Ballistic Junctions

Description
The semiconductor industry continually advances towards making more efficient devices.  This entails making smaller and smaller devices, which leads to an increase in computing power and speed of computers and electronics.  However, there are physical limits beyond which conventional “top-down” techniques using photolithography cease to produce reliable devices.  Much research is currently being conducted to […]

Microfluidic Spotting Device for Label-Free Microarrays

Description
Researchers from the University of Alberta and National Institute for Nanotechnology have created a microfluidic device capable of transporting solutions to desired spots on a gold-patterned substrate for biomolecule analysis. The detection of the molecules is performed using surface plasmon resonance (SPR), which obviates the use of labels (such as fluorescent molecules). The SPR signal […]
