Polarized light: A simple route to highly chiral materials

Researchers have successfully created chiral nanostructures from particles of gold. The trick was to use circularly polarized light to generate electric fields, which localize differently depending on LCP or RCP. This in turn drove the chiral deposition of a dielectric material.

Built for speed: DNA nanomachines take a (rapid) step forward

In a new study, researchers describe an innovative DNA walker, capable of rapidly traversing a prepared track. Rather than slow, tentative steps across a surface, the DNA acrobat cartwheels head over heels, covering ground 10- to 100-fold faster than previous devices.
