How would electrons behave if confined to a wire so slender they could pass through it only in single-file?

DNA ‘cages’ may aid drug delivery

Published: 3Sep2013

Nanoscale “cages” made from strands of DNA can encapsulate small-molecule drugs and release them in response to a specific stimulus, McGill University researchers report in a new study.

A step toward optical transistors?

Published: 9Apr2013
