New nanosensor uses quantum dots to detect DNA
Using tiny semiconductor crystals, biological probes and a laser, Johns Hopkins University engineers have developed a new method of finding specific sequences of DNA by making them light up beneath a microscope.
The researchers, who say the technique will have important uses in medical research,...

Researchers Create DNA-Based Sensors for Nano-Tongues and Nano-Noses
...e extremely sensitive to electrostatic variations in their environment, whether the nanotube is in a liquid or in air.
"When the DNA portion of the nanosensor
binds to a target molecule, there will be a slight change in the electric charge near the nanotube," Johnson said. "The nanotube will then pick up on ...

New security and medical sensor devices made possible by metallic nanostructures
Professor Maier concludes: "This study is a beautiful example of how concepts from different areas of physics fertilise each other in essence our nanosensor
system is a classical analogue of electromagnetically induced transparency, a famous phenomenon from quantum mechanics."
