Nanopores reveal amino acid fingerprints

Researchers have taken a major step toward the sequencing of proteins, demonstrating the accurate identification of amino acids, by briefly pinning each in a nanopore between a pair of flanking electrodes and measuring a characteristic chain of current spikes passing through successive amino acid molecules.

To bridge LEDs' green gap, scientists think small - really small

Nanostructures half the breadth of a DNA strand could improve the efficiency of light emitting diodes, especially in the 'green gap', simulations have shown. Nanostructure LEDs made from indium nitride could lead to more natural-looking white lighting while avoiding some of the efficiency loss today's LEDs experience at high power.
