200 mm wafer-scale integration of sub-20 nm sacrificial nanofluidic channels for manipulating and imaging single DNA molecules

View publication


We report sub-20 nm sacrificial nanochannels that enable stretching and translocating single DNA molecules. Sacrificial silicon nano-structures were etched with XeF2 to form nanochannels. Translocations of linearized DNA single molecules were imaged by fluorescence microscopy. Our method offers a manufacturable wafer-scale approach for CMOS-compatible bio-chip platform. © 2013 IEEE.
