High Resolution Physical Characterization of Single Metallic Nanoparticles



Jessica Ettedgui, Jacob Forstater, Joseph W. Robertson, John J. Kasianowicz


Discrete metal oxygen clusters, polyoxometalates (POMs), can be detected at the single molecule limit, using a biological nanopore-based electronic platform. The method provides a complementary approach to traditional analytical chemistry tools utilized in the study of these molecules.
