Laser beams pluck nano-strings

Abstract:
Todd Murray, Kamil Ekinci and student Ashwinkumar Sampathkumar from Boston University, US, used a laser to pluck nanowires 4 to 10 micrometres long and 250 nanometres in diameter. The researchers say the technique could ultimately be used to make super-sensitive biological sensors capable of weighing individual viruses and other biomolecules.
