Integrating Manmade Nanostructures with Biological Structures

M.A. Stroscio, M. Dutta
2006 2006 Sixth IEEE Conference on Nanotechnology  
This talk will focus on recent efforts aimed at integrating manmade nanostructures with nanoscale-biological structures including: integrating quantum dots (QDs) with nanoscale biological structures and biomolecules including peptides, proteins, antibodies, and DNA; integrating carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with biological structures and biomolecules including peptides, proteins, antibodies, and DNA; and chemical self-assembly of quantum dot ensembles with interconnecting biomolecules. Recent results

Applications will include: luminescent quantum dots as biovoltage sensing elements; and indirectbandgap quantum dots engineered for genetic manipulation of DNA.
