Argonne, NASA-Ames researchers build new biological machines

Abstract:
Building on tiny organisms, researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory are helping to create a new generation of tiny machines for electronic and photonic devices. Working with colleagues from NASA and the SETI Institute, the researchers built bioengineered nanoscale arrays, using genetically engineered proteins as templates to create honeycomb-like patterns of gold and a semiconducting material. Each cell in the array is just 20 nanometers (billionths of a meter) across. Current lithographic techniques that produce similar arrays are limited to about 100 nm.
