Latest Optical tweezers Stories
Physicists at Brown University have developed a novel procedure to map a personâ€™s genome.
Researchers at Purdue University have developed a technique that uses a laser and holograms to precisely position numerous tiny particles within seconds, representing a potential new tool to analyze biological samples or create devices using nanoassembly.
A team led by researchers at the Yale School of Engineering & Applied Science has shown that the force of light can be harnessed to drive machines â€” when the process is scaled to nano-proportions.
By Vayshenker, I Li, X; Livigni, D J; Lehman, J H; Bermudez, J C; Molina, J C; Ruiz, Z E We describe the results of a comparison of reference standards between the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST- USA) and Centro Nacional De Metrologia (CENAM-Mexico).
By Todd, Brian A Parsegian, V Adrian; Shirahata, Akira; Thomas, T J; Rau, Donald C ABSTRACT By combining single-molecule magnetic tweezers and osmotic stress on DNA assemblies, we separate attractive and repulsive components of the total intermolecular interaction between multivalent cation condensed DNA.
Microfabricated optical tweezer has the potential to make biological and microfluidic force measurements in integrated systems such as microfluidic chips
In an effort to combine sophisticated laser and Internet technologies, scientists in Australia have successfully performed laser surgery and â€œoptical trappingâ€ in a Southern California laboratory via the Internet.
Rounding up wayward cells and particles on a microscope slide can be as difficult as corralling wild horses on the range, particularly if there's a need to separate a single individual from the group.
Scientists seeking a simple solution to the tricky task of separating single cells from a herd of others have found a way of making light of the problem.
New York University physicists have applied a ground-breaking nanotechnology method to create three-dimensional quasicrystals, highly ordered structures that, unlike conventional crystals, never repeat themselves.
