'Micro-boxes' of water used to study single molecules
...pplied Physics Letters. The NIST team creates the boxes
by briefly shaking a mixture of water, the biomolecules to be studied, and a fluorocarbon medium. Water droplets form in the oily fluorocarbon and naturally encapsulate one to several biomolecules. The researchers then watch through a microscope whil...
