Biomechanical nanoswitches open door to green bioelectronics

Abstract:
Dr. Saw-Wai Hla and graduate student Violeta Iancu from Ohio University have transformed a molecule of chlorophyll-a into a complex biological switch. The conformation changes of this molecule play a vital role in the photosynthesis process.

"For example" says Hla, "one could imagine using this plant molecule switch at a nano or atomic scale circuit junction to build a selector switch or to be used in a nano/atomic scale logic circuit. Other possible applications could be in bioelectronic and medical devices."
