Charge Splitters and Charge Transport Junctions Based on Guanine Quadruplexes

Professors David Beratan and Peng Zhang, with collaborators at NYU and ASU, have designed, built, and demonstrated current splitters and charge-transport junctions based on self-assembling nucleic acids. These constructs promise to expand the functionality of self-assembling bio-inspired electronic devices at the nanoscale. Learn more about their design from Arizona State's Biodesign Center for Bioelectronics & Biosensors or read more in the February 26 issue of Nature Nanotechnology!
