Press Release 08-222 - Video

Video showing DNA molecules suspended in a stream of water flowing through a nanoscale channel.


This video shows, at a slowed speed, DNA molecules suspended in a stream of water as they flow through a nanoscale channel. Some of the DNA gets captured by a field of light confined in a device called a slot waveguide. When the light is shut off, the DNA flows freely again.
