Engineering graphene nanopores for biosensing!

Researchers have used in-situ electron irradiation and heating in a TEM chamber to manipulate the size of graphene nanopores. This enables the shrinkage or widening of a graphene nanopore. The nanopores can be shrunk to the sizes small enough to thread a single DNA strand. This will help in DNA sequencing.
Graphene is a flourishing material which has significant impact on biomedical industry.
