DNA Origami Enables Fabricating Superconducting Nanowires for Nanoelectronic Circuits of the Future

Fabricating nanoelectronic circuits of the future just got a lot more interesting, thanks to DNA origami. The quest for ever-smaller electronic components led an international group of researchers to explore using molecular building blocks to create them. DNA is able to self-assemble into arbitrary structures, but the challenge with using these structures for nanoelectronic circuits […]
