Researchers devise nano-scale method for investigating living systems

Abstract:
By observing how tiny specks of crystal move through the layers of a biological membrane, a team of electrical and computer engineers and biologists has devised a new method for investigating living systems on the molecular level.

The discovery could lead to an entirely new level of manipulation, imaging and understanding of the inner workings of cells, according to the UW-Madison team led by electrical and computer engineers Dan van der Weide and Robert Blick.

The specks are known as quantum dots or inorganic semiconductor nanocrystals.
