Authors: M. Khongkow, E. Instuli, A. Ivanov, T. Albrecht, J.B. Edel

Affilation: Imperial College London, United Kingdom

Pages: 85 - 87

Keywords: solid-state nanopores, ions, DNA translocations

Abstract:
In this work, we present first results from the experimental implementation of an electrode/nanopore architecture with the aim of characterizing ion and DNA transport under the influence of a local alternating electric field. This includes the fabrication of the Si3N4 membrane/electrode devices, their incorporation into microfluidic structures, and tranlocation experiments at different modulation frequency and amplitude of the AC field.
