Single isolated macromolecules at surfaces

Sung Chul Bae, Feng Xie, Sangmin Jeon, Steve Granick

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new class of direct experiments has begun to address the structure, dynamics, and chemical responsiveness of isolated macromolecules at the solid-liquid interface. New fluorescence-based and atomic force microscopy-based methods provide the needed sensitivity, which formerly was unavailable. The initial findings have begun to pose a family of new questions that are practical as well as fundamental. Directions of research opportunity are surveyed.
