Self-replicating nanostructures made from DNA

(Phys.org)—Is it possible to engineer self-replicating nanomaterials? It could be if we borrow nature's building blocks. DNA is a self-replicating molecule where its component parts, nucleotides, have specific chemical ...

Electronic circuits with reconfigurable pathways closer to reality

Multitasking circuits capable of reconfiguring themselves in real time and switching functions as the need arises—this is the promising application stemming from a discovery made at EPFL and published in Nature Nanotechnology. ...

DNA nanotechnology places enzyme catalysis within an arm's length

Using molecules of DNA like an architectural scaffold, Arizona State University scientists, in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Michigan, have developed a 3-D artificial enzyme cascade that mimics an important ...

Beyond the Moore's Law: Nanocomputing using nanowire tiles

An interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers from The MITRE Corporation and Harvard University have taken key steps toward ultra-small electronic computer systems that push beyond the imminent end of Moore's Law, ...

'Super-resolution' microscope possible for nanostructures

(Phys.org) —Researchers have found a way to see synthetic nanostructures and molecules using a new type of super-resolution optical microscopy that does not require fluorescent dyes, representing a practical tool for biomedical ...
