Manufacturing of nanochannels with controlled dimensions using protease nanolithography Academic Article uri icon


  • The feasibility of creating nanometer scale depressions in biological substrates using active enzymes delivered with scanning probe microscopes has been previously demonstrated by us and other groups. Here we present a comprehensive study revealing the dependence of channels dimensions on the parameters of the “writing” process and provide a simple way to precisely control their dimensions. Such nanochannels may be used in nanofluidic biochip applications.
