Nanofluidics in hollow nanowires.
Förlag: IOP Publishing Ltd
We present a novel scheme for producing nanotube membranes using free-standing hollow nanowires, with easily controllable dimensions. GaAs-AlInP core-shell nanowires were grown by metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy and were partially embedded in a polymer film. The GaAs core and substrate were etched selectively, leaving tubes with open access to both sides of the membrane. Electrophoretic transport of T4-phage DNA through the hollow nanowires was demonstrated using epifluorescence microscopy.
