Silicon Nanowires for Intracellular Optical Interrogation with Sub-Cellular Resolution
Current techniques for intracellular electrical interrogation are substrate−bound and are technically demanding, or lack high spatial resolution. In this work, we use silicon nanowires, which are spontaneously internalized by many cell types, to achieve photo−stimulation with sub−cellular resolution. Myofibroblasts loaded with silicon nanowires remain viable and can undergo cell division. Stimulation of silicon nanowires at separate intracellular locations results in local calcium fluxes.
