Small Sensor Sparks Big Interest

Abstract:
"I have no doubt that eventually we will see artificial molecular devices which will possess some or all of the characteristics of life, such as self-assembly, self replication, self-repair and, possibly and most importantly, the capability to evolve. "The single-molecule feature ... represents in principle the ultimate in sensitivity -- you can't do better than detecting a single molecule," said team leader Giovanni Zocchi, assistant professor of physics.
