Gold nanorod rotary motors for ultra-sensitive DNA detection
Paper in proceedings, 2016

Rotary nanomotors that convert electromagnetic energy into nanoscale mechanical motion provide a highly sensitive platform for studies of biomolecular interactions and biosensing. Here we demonstrate an ultra-sensitive method for detection of short DNA molecules and analysis of DNA melting using single rotating nanorod optically trapped in a focused laser beam.
